  • Everyone is a saint in Brown's eyes, and few are especially interesting as a result.

    September 2, 2010 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Serving as director, co- editor and narrator, Brown turns the obsession of top-ranking surfers into a universally appealing celebration of excellence on the treacherous North Shore of Oahu.

    September 2, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Brown's work here evinces the technically deficient and emotionless curiosity of a sellout.

    August 30, 2010 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…
  • [Director Dana] Brown's main talent is the way he blends stunning cinematography and crisp editing into you-are-there immediacy.

    August 27, 2010 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • Has enough magical shots of surfers standing deep in the curl, their hands rippling along the faces of giant waves, to keep you watching.

  • The big waves of Bruce Brown's famous '60s surfer movies like "Endless Summer" recede in son Dana Brown's piecemeal documentary about the 2005 Oahu North Shore Triple Crown surfing competition.

    September 8, 2010 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
  • In a way, Highwater is the antithesis of The Endless Summer, the film made by Brown's father, Bruce Brown, more than four decades ago.
