  • anarresti's rating of the film Stoked: The Rise and Fall of Gator

    This is a good film to watch along with Dogtown and Z-boys (and Skaterdater, wich I still did not see, but will as soon as I can). The three films go through 3 decades of Skateboarding. This particular one is focused on the tragic story of Mark "Gator", who would be arrested for murder, so we do have to try and look past that. Or see it as a piece about stardom, ego, excess, mania. Nice movie, very solid 3.
