Director Bing Liu's debut feature film is an exquisite documentary: so thoughtful and contemplative, so accessible and unpretentious. Like the recent Netflix-distributed Shirkers – a fascinating behind-the-scenes account of the making of a film that never happened, involving people you’ve never heard of – Minding the Gap is low budget and lovingly textured. Like Sandi Tan, who helmed Shirkers, Liu positions himself at the centre of the experience, framing it as a personal investigation that's part detective story, part cinematic self-therapy session, and part warts-and-all video diary.

Meanders in parts and sometimes relies too heavily on redundant footage, but it contains a staggering degree of maturity for a movie directed and focused on such young subjects.

Bing Liu's impressive documentary feature debut is a revealing look at skateboarding and toxic masculinity.
