Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM, SBS2 ★★★★

Gen­uinely ex­cit­ing and in­volv­ing doc­u­men­tary about the history of skate­board­ing, as told by the hang-ten­ning high priests of the rad­i­cal re­li­gion them­selves. It is di­rected into an in-your-face frenzy by for­mer board­ing champ Stacy Peralta, yet is equally ac­ces­si­ble for skate punks and or­di­nary pedes­tri­ans alike. Nar­ra­tion comes from ac­tor Sean Penn, whose rough-hewn tones (and the oc­ca­sional clear­ing of the throat) sug­gest he recorded his lines in one take.
