Blue Crush
Filmfest 2004

Three friends. One passion. No limits. "Blue Crush” is fairly savvy in creating a character study around the topic of surfing, and even more successful when the camera follows its characters out to ride the waves. Surely, the main selling point behind the picture is its surfing, and director, editor and cinematographer do not disappoint. Rarely has a sport been captured on film with such daring originality and nailbiting tension. From the rainbow-colored ocean, to the creative and complicated camera angles, to the awesome journeys through the pipelines of the waves, the film mercilessly throws the viewers into the dead-center of the action. The results are often nothing short of thrilling. Dustin Putman
