Gus Van Sant directs Gabe Nevins, Taylor Momsen and Jake Miller in this indie teen movie where a skateboarder lives with the guilt over his involvement in the death of a security guard.
Crime And Punishment for the Tony Hawks generation. Nothing much happens… pointedly. The adults are generally out of frame or out of focus like a Peanuts cartoon. There are allusions to the invasion of Afghanistan. Some nice skateboarding footage. It is probably fair to say Tim Hunter’s River’s Edge or Larry Clarke’s Bully do a lot more with this set-up.
