Thoughts on Films – Episode 74: Let’s Talk about Kickflip

The 74th episode of Thoughts on Films is a discussion between Fikri and Hafiz about ‘Kickflip’! Directed by Khairil M. Bahar, it tells the story of Johan, a man facing a mid-life crisis of sorts who finds solace by turning back to one of his earlier passions, skateboarding. Released in December 2020, Fikri and Hafiz talk about the film’s technical qualities, how it relates to real life, and why it’s much more than a skateboarding film. They also consider how it fits into Khairil’s filmography, as well as other socio-cultural issues the film touches on.
