What happens to Ben is a head-spinning account of a talented sportsman completely losing the plot.
It is the brace of interviews conducted in the present day that really resonates with the viewer.
With a strong story at its core and the archive footage to back it up, All This Mayhem proves to be not only an engrossing story but an important one as well.
Once again, we are reminded of the way that the US manages to defang, monetise and institutionalise its own initially thrilling subcultures.
Candid and clear-eyed, this doc will wow boarding fans but has something to offer to the unconverted too.
A painfully frank documentary.
A sad, involving story.
Martin has bestowed cinematic order on mayhem-fuelled lives.
It wants to be Goodfellas or Boogie Nights for the skatepark scene. It gets some of the way there.
Rare is the feat that both as well as All This Mayhem achieves, however: transcending whatever level of care or lack thereof the viewer has for the central activity to elicit a deep, destroying investment in the events dissected and figures immortalised.
Martin turns a cautionary tale into rollercoaster material: with extraordinary home-video footage capturing the Pappas' rise and fall with an immediacy that leaves you stirred, shaken and moved.
There is a thrilling and disturbing story here, with a fully realised and exotic milieu, heroes, villains, a compelling story arc, and gasp-inducing twists and turns.
