MACHOTAILDROP

Unrated, 91 minutes, Canada, 2009 
Directed by Corey Adams & Alex Craig


Meet teenaged layabout Walter Rhum, who wants nothing more than to become a skateboarding star like his idol, Blair Stanley. His plan? Submit a video of his bag of tricks to legendary conglomerate Machotaildrop, then kick back and coast. When his presence is requested at the company's remote, mysterious fortress, he thinks he's got it made, but Walter is about to find out that fame, fortune and ev...en skateboarding can be way totally fraught with complications.

Equal parts surreal comedy, fable and indictment of our co-opting, logo-glutted culture – and 110 per cent just plain weird – Corey Adams and Alex Craig's slyly funny Machotaildrop is only tangentially related to other skateboarding movies. In fact, it has far more in common with Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory and Zéro de conduite than Dogtown and Z-Boys.
