Year’s Best Documentary: The L.A. Boys


1989. The number, another summer. Powell-Peralta’s Ban This was released, contributing to a sea change in skateboarding—tipping the scales towards “street” and opening the doors for a group of four unknown Los Angeles skaters: Guy Mariano, Gabriel Rodriguez, Paulo Diaz, and Rudy Johnson. Colin Kennedy’s The L.A. Boys (which premiered in December at the ArcLight Santa Monica) gives an unprecedented look into their groundbreaking, influential section. This doc goes deep… we hope you like a little nostalgia with your popcorn.
