Directed by Helen Stickler | 2002

With Mark 'Gator' Rogowski, Tony Hawk, Jason Jessee, John Brinton Hogan, Steve Olson

The dark side of skateboarding’s commercialization is explored via the harrowing story of vertical skater Mark "Gator" Rogowski. Riding a wave of popularity in the 80s to lucrative megastardom—only to be chewed up and spat out by the corporate sponsors that created him—Gator ended up behind bars for rape and murder. This “exhilarating and terrifying journey through youth-culture hell” (Chicago Reader) asks troubling questions about the commodification of cool.
