slayin it

DRAGONSLAYER (2011) OFFICIAL TRAILER from Animals of Combat on Vimeo.

i saw this movie Dragonslayer i think two nights ago as part of the unknown pleasures american film festival here
it's a documentary about skreech sandoval
not sure if it was "good" but it won a prize at sxsw so maybe it is

one thing i can definitely say was that it had a rad soundtrack that was done mostly by mexican summer
and had bands like best coast, real estate, thee oh sees, jacuzzi boys, and a lot more

i liked it
i think the best parts were probably the shots of him skating pools in fresno
it made me want to skate and actually be decent or something or just have a good time
i like movies that make you want to do things

even though i think those were the "best parts" i mostly liked it because it wasn't too much about him being skater
even the parts that had him at skate events and things seemed to focus more on him as a person maybe
it seemed "real" to me because it made me feel confused about him
whether i "liked" him or not
documentaries should do that maybe, be somewhat objective and let you decide things
instead of michael moore-ing it

anyway here's a vid of him skating a pool
if you can see the movie i'd recommend it probably if you like mexican summer and you like skateboarding
it's short so you won't get bored
