    Smells Like Screen Spirit has joined forces with Team Dragonslayer and SnagFilms to get everyone totally psyched about the iTunes launch of Tristan Patterson’s documentary about skateboarding, relationships and getting totally fucked up… (Watch Dragonslayer on iTunes now.)

    Director: Tristan Patterson

    Synopsis: Josh “Skreech” Sandoval is somewhat reminiscent of one of those eternally fucked up teenagers from Harmony Korine’s cinematic cannon, but he happens to be one who occasionally reveals a somewhat sympathetic side. Even though Sandoval’s life is constantly on the verge of a massive wipe out, it is difficult not to like him—but only just a little bit. Sandoval does seem to truly like his girlfriend Leslie (though their relationship seems uncommunicative and somewhat asexual, or at least kept private from Patterson’s camera) and his excitement over spending his first day out with his child, Sid Rocket, is pretty darn cute, that is until he cannot figure out how to open the baby stroller, a reminder that Sandoval is a pretty fucked up dad.
