Review
Former pro-skater Stacy Peralta wrote and directed this gem of a film about the birth of vert skating that took place in LA in the 70s. Showing the evolution of skateboarding from the traditional flatland style to the surf-inspired vert style which utilized empty swimming pools and mass amounts of courage. Dogtown is a real ode of love to skating and the intensity of which will even appeal to those not obsessed with the skate scene. Actual footage and retrospective interviews with the original Zephyrs combine to make the film an honest, interesting and compelling tale of the life of one tiny but explosive community.
