August 5, 2018
For a film led by a strong director who champions feminism and girl power, I was ultimately let down by this predictable and overseen trope.
August 7, 2018
A fictionalized account of real-life female skateboarders that could have worked as a documentary but misses the mark in this oddball genre hybrid.
August 18, 2018
The skateboarding scenes, shot by director of photography Shabier Kirchner, are thrilling eye candy, but the script is pure pap dealing in alienated-teen clichés and rote romantic machinations.

August 8, 2018
An often meandering, dull and underwhelming coming-of-age drama that fails to be genuinely moving or profound.
Full Review | Original Score: 5.4843853981/10
August 13, 2018
The depiction of Camille's quest for freedom and identity feels narrow and constrained.
August 16, 2018
It's just one meaningless scene followed by another.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
August 10, 2018
Unlike the skaters -- always magnetic when they ollie and rail -- Moselle has only one move as a filmmaker: rhapsodic slo-mo and drony guitar rock on the soundtrack.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 24, 2018
A brilliant coming of age tale that delves in a cultural scene many filmmakers failed to capture, but Moselle achieves with her shredding cast, script, and direction making it a new age classic.
Full Review | Original Score: 4.5/5
August 21, 2018
The film really shines when it highlights the differences between these characters and your regular, average teen.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
August 16, 2018
Moselle believes in the power of girls. The friendships through which Camille learns how to be loved become the anguish that breaks her heart and the forgiveness that humbly heals her.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
September 6, 2018
Though ostensibly a simple hangout movie, Skate Kitchen is quietly revolutionary for how it approaches womanhood.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
August 15, 2018
The entire movie hangs like a varial kickflip on the strength its star. Vinberg is quiet, subdued, and affected when the situation demands.

August 5, 2018
The film is empathetic toward and clear-eyed about its young characters, even if the drama it constructs around them tends toward the superficial.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
August 10, 2018
It dwells on female friendships that defy the usual simplistic conventions... Everybody should see this movie and relish the interesting and adorable characters it delivers.
August 8, 2018
An anthem to skating that simultaneously lifts stigma and supports young girls who want to pick up a board.
July 30, 2018
As a snapshot of the way young people converge and interact, it is a fascinating, funny, warm experience, capturing the varied complexities of its young women in bold colours.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
August 22, 2018
A stimulating ride that is sure to please young women who spend their days at the skatepark and encourage others to give it a shot.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
August 31, 2018
Skate Kitchen is summer in a bottle, full of the firefly light and heat of the season.
August 1, 2018
Even if Skate Kitchen doesn't seem like your bag (it isn't really mine, on paper), it's worth checking out. It's unlikely you'll see a more poetic depiction of friendship this year.
June 6, 2018
The first teen movie of the Instagram era that feels genuinely timeless.
