STYLE. GROOMING. INSPIRATION. ADVICE.
Christian Slater’s 1989 performance as skateboarding slacker turned amateur murder investigator Brian Kelly might not have set the cinematic world alight (a New York Times review at the time praised the actor for seeming 'confident and alert throughout') but Gleaming The Cube remains notable for two main reasons.
There’s the slew of OG skate heroes who served as stuntmen and made cameo appearances in the film (including Bones Brigade members Tony Hawk and Tommy Guerrero), lending it legit scene cred (if not plot plausibility). And then there’s Slater’s sweet and supremely stealable late 80s punk-rock steez.
