Critic Reviews for Highwater
Everyone is a saint in Brown's eyes, and few are especially interesting as a result.
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.
[Director Dana] Brown's main talent is the way he blends stunning cinematography and crisp editing into you-are-there immediacy.
Has enough magical shots of surfers standing deep in the curl, their hands rippling along the faces of giant waves, to keep you watching.
Audience Reviews for Highwater
From the director of 'Step Into Liquid' (and son of the legendary director of 'Endless Summer'), comes a movie that doesn't quite make it up to par with the others. Yes, it has some great surf footage from the top pro-surfers (guys & ladies), but the movie can't decide if it's a documentary on 2009's Triple Crown contest or a documentary about life and the history of the North Shore of Oahu, Hawaii. If you love surfing, you'll like it. If you don't, you'll at least 'get it' with this movie. It explains itself well to the novice viewer. I'd choose a few other surf movies to watch first though.
