It is a bit short, But is so tight and well edited it can afford to be. Its awesome to chuck it on just before a session like I did this morning. The soundtrack is killer too. The last section is one of my all time favourites..
I think the thing about mike was more aimed at the fact that what works for one person, doesn't necessarily work for another. If you listen to the whole thing, its not that he is writing off mike as a mentor, just that he knew that for the way he wanted to ride, the advice might not have been warranted. The more I listen to it the more i get it, but I do admit I was a bit shocked too at first.
Overall I reckon its a sick film, and cant wait for his next project. That kid is super ambitious..
