30 Films To See At London Film Festival 2011
What Is It? Not the classic, beast-felling fantasy from 1981 starring Peter MacNicol – in fact, far from it.
This new Dragonslayer is a skater documentary that took home the Best Documentary award at the SXSW Festival earlier this year.
Star of the show is Josh ‘Skreech’ Sandoval, a homeless California skateboarder who bums off his friends and spends his time getting drunk and/or high. Clearly influenced by Gus Van Sant, director Tristan Patterson delivers a cool indie doc that doesn’t flinch away from its subject.
