I was really skeptical when I started seeing Lords of Dogtown tv-spots. Is a fictionalization really necessary if there is already an excellent documentary. I looked into it and found out that the script for this movie was apparently written by the writer/director of the documentary, so I’m going to hold off judgment. They also got the production designer from Tank Girl to direct. That’s good right? I mean Naomi Watts survived that and it only took six more years for people to appreciate her.
