Even if you don’t even know how to spell skateboard, much less stand on one, chances are you know the name Tony Hawk. The face of the sport for more than 20 years, he was clearly due his own documentary, and director Sam Jones (who also directed that landmark ‘Beard After Dark’ episode of “Ted Lasso”) has pulled together a good one. Steering clear of the “Behind the Music” type melodrama, Jones tells Hawk’s story simply and straightforward, pulling on candid and honest interviews from Hawk and virtually everyone he’s ever come in contact with. You may not know or think you even care, but it’ll suck you right in.

4/5 stars
