Now on Hulu.

From Variety: "Lurking behind all that fancy maneuvering and adolescent angst is a young man consumed with the subject of domestic violence, a soft-spoken kid who internalized the fact that he was severely beaten by his stepdad, and who came to detect a pattern of dysfunctional father figures among his fellow skaters. That theme creeps up slow but profound in Liu’s film, which broadens to address such topics as class, race, alcoholism, and a terrifying physical rage that can explode behind closed doors."

It's a hell of a movie and it's now on Hulu. I'm also a sucker for docs that track their subjects over a timespan.
