Critic Reviews for White Wash

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (2)

Employing the usual grab bag of documentary building blocks, Mr. Woods never quite melds his film into a compelling whole, though individual pieces can be fascinating.

Top Critic

Even at 78 minutes, White Wash pads its material through repetition but remains a proficient portrait of how increased social, economic, and geographic opportunity fosters diversity -- in life and out on the waves.

Top Critic

Feels simultaneously dense with information and analysis and as pleasantly breezy as a day at the beach-at least for its first half.
