Free Online: Lords of Dogtown

Sony Pictures

I hadn’t seen Catherine Hardwick’s adaptation of Stacy Peralta’s documentary, Z-Boys and Dogtown, since it came out in theaters; I had kind of forgotten how awesome it is. From the cinematic style and period-piece ascetic of the clothes, the cars, and of course, those old-school skateboards, to the fine acting jobs (particulary Heath Ledger and Emile Hirsch), this film tells a great story of Seventies glory.

I remember seeing this and thinking Emile should play Kurt Cobain in a biopic, or maybe River Phoenix. Acting chops aside, his skateboarding skills are nothing to sneeze at, either.

And at this moment we can watch it on Crackle, with limited ads, but otherwise free. Highly recommended if you like movies that rock. The endpiece is especially poignant and cool. So, if you’re interested, here it is. (UPDATE: no longer available. Sorry, folks.)

Awesome random cast members: Rebecca De Mornay, Johnny Knoxville, and Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner.

  1. Paragraph writing is also a excitement, if you be familiar with after that you can write if not it
    is complicated to write.

  2. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason
    seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about.

    You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal.

    Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
