A documentary about Ben and Tas Pappas: two brothers from Australia who moved to America in the early ’90s and became the best skateboarders in the world. Then they got famous, then they got really into cocaine, and things just went south from there.
Utter insanity, warts and all. Even if you’ve never heard of these guys, even if skateboarding isn’t your thing, this right here is an easy recommendation. It’s like Scarface with vert ramps and it’s chock full of great, unapologetic interviews that’ll have you dumbfounded as to how anyone came out alive. Another great reason to say no to drugs.
It’s got a cool 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.
