Film #145: WATERMAN
3 out of 5 stars
A beautifully-shot rumination on surfing focusing on a group of surfer's and their relationship with water / the ocean. It's great to see people like Laird Hamilton, Gerry Lopez, Dave Kalama, and Rob Machado doing what they do best. That all said, there's really not a lot new here. Yes, it's pretty and these guys are among the world's top surfers, but it's not as if you can't get footage of them surfing elsewhere. If you're a fan of surf vids, then go ahead and rent this. If not (or if you're new to the genre), rent STEP INTO LIQUID or RIDING GIANTS instead.
