12 O'Clock Boys

12 O'Clock Boys
Director: Lotfy Nathan, 2013.
United States, 76 minutes.
English.

Lotfy Nathan's first feature length documentary, 12 O'Clock Boys, follows Baltimore's most notorious dirt bike gang.  Named for their signature move, a wheelie pulled back to nearly 12 o'clock, we get a healthy dose of daredevil antics without the sensationalism and pearl-clutching perspective often taken in typical media coverage of their activity.Though not always balanced, the Nathan provides an op-ed commentary and narrative for the group as a counterpoint to the narrative promoted in mainstream media, from the groups origins and own history, self-identified purpose, and future, interwoven with the story of Pug  13-year-old looking to join the group.
