Movie Info

Today skateboarding is omnipresent. Take a walk down any street in any town, and you are destined to see someone riding a skateboard. Well, it wasn't always like that. In the early '80s, skateboarding was fading away until Stacy Peralta brought a profoundly talented group of outsiders together and dubbed them the Bones Brigade. This documentary chronicles their epic rise, using awesome archival footage and moving first-person accounts from Brigade members Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony

Like a high school reunion, filled with affectionate memories of an earlier, more innocent, time.

This film makes a great companion piece to Peralta's "Dogtown and Z-Boys,'' which leaves off where "Bones Brigades'' begins.

Gradually becomes an echo chamber of personal dramas and exploits, not to mention propulsive soundtrack cues - all within a sport already nursing a penchant for self-documentation.

The film risks self-importance, but when Peralta admits through tears just how much he loves his skater charges, it imparts what every parent knows ...

Peralta's doc is a generous, tasty slice of skateboarding history.

Aside from a lack of journalistic integrity, it's a well-assembled film, one that capitalizes on the charisma of its interview subjects.

The film may be shameless self-promotion and navel-gazing (it's sponsored by Vans), but the interviews are so candid and introspective that it's worthwhile.

You don't need to be knee-deep or even care about skateboarding to fall in love with this film. Bones Brigade: The Autobiography is a masterpiece.

For anyone who's ever wanted to know how tricks like the "Olly" and the "McTwist" came to be, or how exactly Tony Hawk became a superstar, this movie is highly informative and even inspirational.
