HBO's documentary "The Crash Reel" tells the story of snowboarder Kevin Pearce's horrific crash on a practice run in preparation for the 2010 Olympics and his struggle to recover from the Tramautic Brain Injury he suffered.

This is a moving story of how family, friends and community come together to help a fallen star in great need, and how the wounded star adapts, changes his perspective on life and returns the favor. It's more than an action sports film. I give it 10 stars.

Another RadXSports video with Lauren Teton from Snowboard Secrets doing the interview. Visit her website http:/www.snowboardsecrets.com

We spoke with Kevin about the film after a screening of the film at the HBO Studios in New York.

Our interview with Director Lucy Walker will be posted shortly.

The clip of Kevin in the halfpipe where the event announcer lists his recent victories is from the 2008 Burton US Open Snowboarding Championships. The entire clip is in the playlist.
