Dir. Matt Beauchesne, 2010
For the first couple of minutes of this film one might feel that they are about to watch a profile on Julian Wilson, the surf prodigy from Australia. With just enough insight into his upbringing, the movie gives some background on how he just came to be. Then the film really begins.
With filming taking place in six locations each one seems to have its own theme. Through solid cinematography and editing, these location segments break up the surfing enough to make you want more. The envelope is pushed with each segment just enough to make you want the next one to hit the screen faster.
The surfing in this film is high energy, the music and use of speed control creates a very powerful visual on screen that makes the action seem almost surreal.
Although this is the first flick with him playing the lead, it does make you anxious to see what is going to happen next from this rising star.
