An uproarious lo-fi labyrinth of suburban adolescent shenanigans over ‘one crazy summer’, MANGOSHAKE recalls the generational coming-of-age myths of Richard Linklater or George Lucas’s American Graffiti, but filtered through a raw and frequently anarchic aesthetic that affords it a disarming authenticity. Shot over a single summer among a group of real-life friends and acquaintances, themselves at the crossroads of adulthood, the film in a sense also documents its own creation. Akin to thumbing the pages of a teenager’s secret diary, jubilant irreverence gives way to startlingly profound pangs of existential angst, relationships evaporate without catharsis, and the ‘best’ or ‘worst’ day of one’s life are perpetually up for emotional debate.
Gold Ninja Video is proud to present MANGOSHAKE on Blu-ray for the first time in a feature packed special edition that includes the Extended Heatstroke Edition, a commentary track with Writer/Director Terry Chiu, deleted scenes, short films, behind the scenes footage, festival introductions, and the complete soundtrack on portable compact disc!
