Movie Review

Skatopia: 88 Acres of Anarchy-

The official description from imdb says it quite well:
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. 

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. Now 40, he's bent on creating a monument to freedom that will outlast him. 

The movie celebrates the freedom from everyday life that Skatopia offers, but it also takes a hard look at the flip side of Brewce's energy and charisma. 

You should watch this movie.
And their next Bowl Bash party is just around the corner.
