This is a good documentary that suffers from an image problem. The title sounds like something from D&D and the cover makes it seem like it's a straightforward skating bio. It's the story of Josh "Skreech" Sandoval and the effect of the recession on his Californian hometown and his loss of sponsorship that throws him into a stoned limbo. Great soundtrack.

You see more lighting up of cannabis than you see good skating. Frankly, there are better media out there on both. --When you see current photos of Josh "Skeech" Sandoval endorsing a product, you see a stoned, no-one home and lost soul staring back at you. Wasted brain cells did not make for good skating in Sweden.

No idea how to rate this - it's a really good documentary about hardcore skaters and the world they live in. They're all so loaded all the time though that you're pretty much watching them destroy themselves and their futures. In the end, I gave it a good rating because it stayed with me for a few days after I watched it.
