Though Splinters emulates a laid-back surfer-dude vibe all too well in its sluggish middle third, the final surf-off is a total white-knuckler.

[VIDEO] Adam Pesce's absorbing cross-cultural documentary about a small indigenous community in the village of Vanimo, Papua New Guinea provides an intimate view into an island culture revolutionized by one thing, a surfboard.

Adam Pesce never condescends to any of his subjects, but good intentions alone don't make for a captivating movie.
