08.09.14Netflix I watched this to see what Curtis Hanson has been up to. He had a run of 3 or 4 really good movies there for a while... now it seems like he's fallen out of vogue for one reason or another.

Anyway, this was a decent movie. So much of a surfing movie is up to the photography and Bill Pope shot the hell out of it.. The bits that are not surfing were... ok. I mean I bet if this came out instead of North Shore when I was younger, I'd've loved it just as much... but being older some of it is pretty cheeseball. Then because it's based on a true story they have to have this really weird tonally out of the blue ending that nobody ever would have written if it didn't actually happen.

But whatev... surfing movie...
