02.03.05Netflix I'm a sucker for surfing movies... North Shore, Point Break, you name it... I also liked Dogtown & Z-Boys so... This was a good docu... it used a lot of good music and quick edits (as he did in Dogtown) to create a sort of flipside to Step Into Liquid, which was all about serene photography and languid philosophy. Giants is grittier, MTV-ier, and of course specializing in big wave surfing (not much is said about the mid 60s-mid 80s). Still great though... seeing those guys as specks on the tableau of these cyclopean waves... they didn't use the underwater shot of the fingers streaking through the wave (i love that shot) but oh well.. great otherwise.
