Not a Film That I Would Expect to Like, Yet I Did

Successfully using non-professional actors at the time (with the exceptions of Elizabeth Rodriguez and Jaden Smith) this quasi-documentary centers on the NYC female skateboarding collective known as Skate Kitchen. It falls short at times, but overall I found it another fascinating film from director Crystal Moselle (The Wolfpack). Although I'm way out of the intended demographic of the movie, I still was quite engaged and interested in the characters of the Skate Kitchen. With the exception of the lead here Camille (Rachelle Vinberg), we really don't find out a lot about the backgrounds or history of these teens. Thus, the movie is more about the portrayal of female friendship and bonding at this age, with the, at times, inevitable crossing paths with some male skateboarders. Not a film that I would expect to like, yet I was taken in by the intimate portrayal of these teens, while trying not to judge their futures.

Cute, but awful acting, script, and plot.

Listen, I know that skaters tend to act bored and unamused, but this was a whole new level. No emotion whatsoever, except in the most fake way possible. If you're making a movie with amateur actors, at least get the actors some acting lessons. Secondly, the dialogue was terrible. No flow or storyline whatsoever, and so, so many awkward moments. Plus most of the skaters are written to be very b****y, yet are portrayed positively, which really grinded my gears. On an artistic level... well, it isn't. But on an entertainment level, it's okay, I guess. Doesn't accurately portray NYC culture (which I am fine with, except everyone is calling it authentic and it really isn't). It's fine if you like coming of age movies and if you're interested in skating. (Too boring to qualify as "fun", though.)

It's Just A Good Teen Story & That's Enough

There is no message or lecture in this film. It's just a good teen female story & that's enough. I've seen several attempts at teen-realism movies in the past few years which fall flat on their... because of a heavy PC lecture element which really turns folk off. Thankfully Skate Kitchen does not do that & that is one of the reasons for its success - it's just a good story. 'Teen-realism' is obviously tongue-in-cheek because no movie is ever realistic. But I like the world created by the writer/director here. It's harnessed a fairytale vibe which is no bad thing in a story of about young women. It allows the beauty/femininity of the characters to come through which allows the audience to empathise. This un-PC man liked it.
