This is the true story of how a person can have everything and end up with nothing--all before turning 30. Mark "Gator" Rogowski's tale of fame and infamy could be an E! True Hollywood Story, if only he had only been a mainstream celebrity. Instead, he was a popular, 1980s-era pro skateboarder in the sport's early days. As skating gained popularity, Gator did too, with product endorsements, sponsorships and a steady stream of fans, female admirers and cash.
The movie, peppered with interviews with skaters Tony Hawk, Stacy Peralta and Rogowski himself, captures both the '80s and the sadness of lost innocence. Put this ride on your must-see list.
