12 O’Clock Boys, by Lotfy Nathan

12 O’Clock Boys isn’t just a gorgeous art film about an extreme sport, nor is it just a social film about problems we’re facing in the city. It’s both of those things, and they are both captured so well in the character study of Pug—the film’s protagonist, who desperately wants to be a 12 O’Clock Boy—and his struggling mother, Coco, that it is a good movie even if you’ve never seen or don’t care about people riding dirt bikes on city streets. But since you do care about those things, this isn’t only a great movie, it is an important one.
