Fresh: Skate culture remains in solid hands with filmmaker Stacy Peralta, who fashions his most personal doc on the sport-cum-lifestyle. – Robert Koehler, Variety, Jan 25, 2012

My era of growing up

Love Stacey style of filming this. The tracking interview shots are great the mix with the old stock footage and stills. The love of the sport and the love of the BB is quite evident throughout the film. The passion the BB have for skating and then passion for one another egnighted some great memories of my skating childhood. Loved the Bones Brigade growing up. Thank you for making this film finally been waiting 5 years at least for it. Loved the film.
