This is where skating started. This blu-ray is ridiculously good, of course it's got the PG-13 rating so Glen Friedman is still bleeped from saying the F-Word. But really, this documentary is amazing, even my mom dug it...skating in the 70's, the birth of what we've got today. Jay Adams, Tony Alva, Stacy Peralta...all of the greats are here.

I'm not a skateboarder--I never have been. So my review of this film is from a truly "outsider" position. I'll skip making comments about the wonderful aspects of this film as a documentary about skateboarding, because to me what makes this a truly remarkable work of art has to do with being a documentary about life and truth and beauty and all that.
This movie is about hope. It paints a picture of young kids growing up in an incredibly harsh environment (the film goes out of its way to portray Venice of the early '70's in practically post-apocalyptic images) who see in the concrete wasteland nothing but ocean waves of endless promise. They craft, as artists, a new ballet amidst the rubble. They are obsessed with skating the perfect run, not necessarily to be better than their friends, but just for the sake of perfection. In this pursuit of perfection, I see hope. I see a vision of a recreated world where there are no barriers based on class or empty swimming pools surrounded by fences and patrolled by police. But there's also an irony in the hope, in that the Zephyr boys have an exclusivity about them--they are fiercely elite in their rejection of conventionality.
The story of one of the top two skateboarders, Jay Adams, provides the heart to this film. His story provides a balance to the narrative of corporate greed, which ultimately destroyed the Zephyr team (but which also made the film possible and the story relevent). He is shown as a very young and, though violent and utterly contemptous, innocent boy oozing with natural talent. He's interviewed several times as an adult who, we find out, is doing time for heroin-related charges in Hawaii. Next to the brilliance of the Jay Adams the boy, in Jay Adams the man we see a dark shell of regret and pain.

This is a documentary you must see. I saw "Dogtown and Z-Boys" a long time ago and enjoyed every minute of it and still do to this day. The soundtrack is amazing with some great music and awesome stories and history of the Z-Boys.

If you love skateboarding this is a must have to own. The Z-Boys introduced a completely different style of skateboarding and became some of the biggest influences for professional skateboarders and skateboarders in general.

So check it out and enjoy!

I have to say this movie was quite enjoyable...and that's an understatement. I enjoyed the "punk-aesthetic" of the editing, the cool photos, and especially the soundtrack. I wished the documentary dug a little deeper into the crew's backgrounds though (i.e. family life, school [some dropped out of high school], drug use, aftermath of the '70's skateboard craze, etc.). It left me hangin' a bit; so many unanswered questions. Too many skeletons I guess... I wanted the "low-down". Overall it's still a good film (in a flashy "video" sorta way!)...

Style-wise, the documentary footage was too cut up and special effected for my taste. Granted, film footage from the 70's is minimal, and lots of still pictures had to be weaved in. It shouldn't be Ken Burns slow, but the fast cuts seem very MTV 90's or 00's... while the scene and music are perfectly 70's. Sean Penn's narration is a great coup - the perfect actor for this. At one point, Penn got stuck half way through a word, stopped, cleared his throat, repeated the word, and kept going. I love that no one said "do it again"... a punk aesthetic.
The Dogtown themes remind me of "Style Wars," about late 70's/early 80's New York City kids using graffiti, breakin', and rap to turn their environment into "art." (Authorities often called it "crime.") Dogtown (South Santa Monica/Venice) Z-Boys use their resources - athleticism, style, mental hunger, and physical environment - to create a new attitude... that fed/feeds energy to the world. As a Pasadena grandma would say, "Not too shabby!.... Uh... What the %@# happened to my pool!"
With so many 70's skaters covered in the film (by design - to show the scene), few of the individual stories carry much weight. Jay Adams' story was most interesting: He was the youngest and brightest skater, but at some point took a walk on the too wild side for too long. Adams' not lasting with the pro scene is portrayed as big a loss for skateboarding as Alva's ascendancy was a gain.
Overall, Dogtown is a unique "one of." That said, I prefer the 80's themed documentary "Stoked: The Rise and Fall of Gator." (It's technically more formal and linear.) Take the preference with a grain of salt... I'm a product of the 80's.
