Watch 12 O'Clock Boys
- 1 hr 15 min
The documentary film 12 O'Clock Boys follows a group young men who terrorize Baltimore with their reckless motorcycle riding. In the most thrilling trip into Baltimore since The Wire, we follow Pug, a precocious kid who will stop at nothing to join the 12 O'Clock Boys, a notorious dirt bike pack who perform death-defying stunts while evading the police. The group, known as the "12 O'Clock Boyz", emerged at illegal street rides by the start of the 21st century, and two members videotaped the stunts in 2001 and 2003. For the documentary the boy, Pug, was filmed over several years starting when he was 11, using a high-speed Phantom camera, whose footage was slowed, as well as a Canon 7G, with the crew strapped into the bed of a truck. Nathan, the director, was arrested once on suspicion of participation in the rides. The film also includes interviews with members of the group as well as Pug's mother, Coco, plus footage from a variety of local newscasts and clips from the 12 O'Clock Boyz videos.
