It's amazing we hadn't heard of this movie until Tiny Vices posted the trailer last week—skating, absurd comedy, fire, flannel=daily google alerts—but we have now and it's looking to be really good. Machotaildrop is ostensibly a skateboarding movie, but only in the same way that our parents' home movies are about band/soccer/spelling bees and not embarrassment and failure. Or maybe its directors, Corey Adams and Alex Craig (winners of Fuel TV's million dollar short film contest) realized that we're all jaded by the conventional skate part-tour van-party-puke-skate part plot of most videos and that what we really need is an intertwined narrative that is equally Terry Gilliam and Paul Thomas Anderson and Rick McCrank's facial hair. Accident or cinematic revolution, we're excited about this development and look forward to seeing each of the bizarre scenes in this trailer played out in full glory.
Machotaildrop is the Avatar of Skate Movies
