Dragonslayer

Rated NR 2011

Dragonslayer is a repellent and poorly conceived documentary focusing on Josh “Skreech” Sandoval, a career skateboarder and new father. The film, which won the Grand Jury Prize for Best Documentary Feature at last year’s SXSW, shows Sandoval selfishly perpetuating his own childhood, rather than being involved in the life of his child. He smokes, gets high and drinks, and what little money he does get from his occupation goes straight to these activities, rather than to his kid or even putting a real roof over his own head. The guy is extremely unlikable and not particularly interesting. He is shown eventually losing his sponsor, selling his stuff and leaving California for what will ultimately be a failed journey. When he comes home, he gets a job at a bowling alley and finally starts spending more time with his kid; however, by this point, you won’t care about this admitted “scumbag.”
