Editorial Reviews

Skatopia is an Appalachian farm where hardcore skating, punk rock and hillbilly culture collide in one anarchistic, unique community. Mad-Max style demolition derbies and spontaneous car burning accompany all-night skate sessions. Pain is a badge of honor. Skatopia's owner, Brewce Martin, dreamed of a place where he could live and breathe skating... a place where people forget their "outside" lives by plunging into high-energy craziness. A continual work-in-progress, this rural farm is a mecca for skaters who want to live outside society's rules. "Dictator Brewce" presides over the mayhem like a modern-day Jim Jones. But despite Skatopia's infamy, he scrambles non-stop to keep the farm solvent. When unexpected events take a turn for the worst, Dictator Brewce must help salvage his income, his relationships and rest of the skating season.

That this film has won a number of film festival awards only suggests that, as a documentary of a strange and disturbing youth cult, it is well done.

But what it portrays - a violent cult leader and his perverse following - illustrates everything that's wrong with today's "youth" (I put that in quotation marks because the leader is an adolescent of 40) culture.

This is an excellent documentary that takes you behind the scenes of subculture that most would never have the chance to experience otherwise. It shows people from disparate backgrounds and considerably different ages all of whom are unified in their love of skateboarding, partying and personal freedom.

Yes, this movie shows a filthy, depraved underbelly and many/most might not choose to live this way but this is EXACTLY what a great documentary should do - expose us to worlds unseen.

I'm super impressed with what has been captured here and it makes me want to venture out and see and experience this firsthand with my own two eyes.
