Movie Info

A professional skateboarder drifts through life with seemingly little regard for adult responsibilities, preferring instead to skate in abandoned pools and camp in friends' yards.

  • Dragonslayer is an amazing window into a particular part of the culture and how we live now. You'll think about Skreech -- his father's day gift for his son, his new job at a bowling alley -- for a long time after you leave the theatre.

  • Like many good documentary filmmakers, Tristan Patterson is a talented eavesdropper who lets characters articulate overriding themes.

    December 16, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • In following this scattered character around, "Dragonslayer" director Tristan Patterson makes a very purposeful documentary about the pessimistic worldview of the nation's youth, and what that means for the future.

    November 17, 2011 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A youth culture backdropped by the crumbling edge of California is rendered with punk rock energy and grace.

  • The portrait is dispiriting overall, inspiring little affection from viewers, but feels authentic and fair.

    November 8, 2011 | Full Review…
  • Despite a slew of skateboarding films in recent years, each one quite distinct, Patterson's pic arguably comes closest to channeling the culture's punk vibe and youthful abandon, albeit filtered through an outsider's aesthetic.
