Audience Reviews for Minding the Gap

  • Mar 01, 2019
    Apart from a forced attempt at sentimentality in the end and the fact that the editing feels mostly random with not much sense of structure, I appreciate how close to Liu's heart his film is and how it shows that skateboarding can be a means for some people to get away from domestic abuse.

    Bing Liu weaves together themes of masculine and societal expectations through his friends Keire and Zack. Such layers are bridges through the trioï¿ 1/2(TM)s skateboarding bond that has always been a point of escapism whether it be from each of their damaged upbringings or the trappings of adulthood they find themselves encountering and dealing (or not dealing) with. Some terrific editing and a few choice cuts specifically hammer home the clarity it seems Liu intended to chase.
