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.

An exhaustive - no, make that exhausting - look at a team of young skateboarders ...
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 ...
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.
