Dir. Kai Neville, 2011
Lost Atlas is Neville's second film. With his first, Modern Collective, he was able to break the mold of the surf film and create a new high action entertaining style. Lost Atlasfollows in the same concept. Completed in twelve months with twelve surfers, Neville creates a location based film that uses music in collaboration with the action on the screen to set a mood of slight fantasy with utter reality, cut ins of the surfers adventures to find waves and their surroundings this is a slight documentary undertone to set up each location.
The surfing is above par, the cinematography is is up there with some work left to be desired, and the editing has great flow to it but there is some lost points within the cut ins. Lost Atlas is a must see for any surfer who wants the some of the best surfers on some of the best waves, and for film lovers is is a must see to get a glimpse on where the surf film might be headed with this post modern look at surfing.
