Minding the Gap []

This is a beautiful movie created by a youngster with footage going back to their mid-teens. Three boys, close friends in transition from mid teens to early 20s. It's sad, it's beautiful and it's real. And the kid with the camera is a natural filmmaker. Hulu calls it a 'skateboarding movie' - holy christ, that's NOT what it is at all.

The brief summary does a much better job: 'Filmmaker Bing Liu searches for correlations between his skateboarder friends' turbulent upbringings and the complexities of modern-day masculinity.' Race isn't really a subject here, but one is Chinese, one is black and one is white.

Watch the trailer - you'll know if this is something you want to see or not - the trailer itself is a work of art.


I saw this a couple of months ago and found it really moving, but it's a small production - I never expected to see it get a nomination. It has a good chance of winning.
