Synopsis

Scenes where a teenager runs with his skateboard seem to have become a cliché to the modern American society, better with strong beats from punk rock. Teenage skateboarders from Paranoid Park by Gus van Sant and Wassup Rockers by Larry Clark reflect portraits of youth who suffer from growing pains, broken families and discrimination by class and race. The protagonist of Dragonslayer, Josh Sandoval, has passed through those growing pains and is now in his twenties. He now has a baby and girlfriend to take care of. The film is composed of 11 titled chapters, and the film, as if to express the anxiety of Josh, is dizzy with images of flying skateboards and mysterious energy collaged by the combination of marijuana and alcohol. However, the image of the unlatched soul of Josh is sympathetic and strangely lyrical. Josh and his girlfriend Leslie’s travel across the western part of country is also dreamlike. Appropriate use of dynamic yet beautiful camera movement capturing ‘high’ board running and independent punk music adds more charm to this film. (KIM Young-woo)
