12 O’Clock Boys may be one of the best documentaries about the hoods of Baltimore but it’s the definitive documentary about bike life in 12 O’Clock Boys. I actually wrote about it last year:
But after watching [12 O’Clock Boys], it might be one of the best documentaries I’ve seen in a while. The movies follows Pug, a young boy from the inner cities of Baltimore, who is obsessed with his city’s dirt bike culture. He also one day hopes to ride with a group of illegal dirt bike riders known as The 12 O’Clock Boys (Where the film gets it’s name from). And like I said, the movie is great. It deals with poverty, Black culture, bike culture, death, police brutality; so much stuff is covered in a movie that’s suppose to be about riding dirt bikes illegally on the streets.
