Tim Winton’s depiction of the southwest is drawing me back
Loved it. Having grown up in Western Australia in the 70’s I loved every bit of this movie. Every bit that I could relate to that is. The feeling of being dumped in the surf, the chopper style pushies with banana seats, the poppity clatter of an old Kombie motor, the sandy WA bush, slipping on the rocks, the feeling of going up and over a wave just before it breaks, the rush of catching a wave, dancing badly at the school social, suntanned young skin, holding a girls hand, getting up at dawn to go surfing.. and of course, holding my breath under water just that bit too long. Couldn’t help but not relate to avocado’s in WA in the 70’s.. I don’t ever remember them.. and I’m a bit of a nerd when it comes to WA number plates.. the Kombi had black plates with white characters. The number format was right, even the first letter U was authentic, but sorry I don’t ever recall black background with white letters.
Surfers Are a Different Breed
Several years back I went to a benefit concert and the organization receiving funds was named “Heal the Ocean.” We live in a sad time now when all we do is pillage and foul the oceans. It was good to step back into the past and see surfing as it was done in a much more innocent (and uncrowded) time. A time before we even thought about ocean pollution or five guys on one wave.
At that benefit, outside and before the concert began, I couldn’t help but notice how many of the young guys had that look in their eyes. You can pretty much pick out surfers in a crowd by the way their eyes always seem to be looking off to the distance. It’s a sort of supernatural stare and I attribute it to the fact that they spend a lot of time out on the ocean, gazing across the water, watching for that perfect ride.
As I wrote at the beginning of my review, “Breath” takes us back to a simpler time, and——- I guess I’m the first one to mention this in these reviews (?)—–a time before leashes.
Although I admit I was surprised to see no leashes in this movie. The prototype surf leash actually came into being in 1972, used at Cactus, Australia. I guess leashes hadn’t yet made their way to the West Coast?
Just an observation. Surfers had to be a lot more fit and brave back in the days pre-leash. A heck of a lot more swimming while chasing down one’s board and a lot less chances taken on a wave. I enjoyed seeing these three men surfing leash-less on huge sets.
As for the story and the acting and directing: Wow. Awesome. Just plain awesome. Spoiler alert: the only part I couldn’t get into was the erotic asphyxiation part. Totally cringeworthy. I don’t think any 15-year-old should be exposed to that kind of “adult” craziness. But that’s just me. We don’t care that Hutchence and Carradine topped themselves while engaging in such creepy sex acts, do we? Or maybe a plastic bag is different from using a belt? What do I know . . .
Anyway. I didn’t like seeing Pikelet subjected to that sad and damaged woman’s sexual deviancy. Call me a prude, but there’s great sex and then there’s BDSM type b.s. Pikelet didn’t need to be a part of that.
See? He got to me. Pikelet. I fell in love with him. What terrific acting. Him and Loonie both. And the directing. Hats off to Simon Baker. Every scene was perfection. Every actor spot-on.
I’ve already gone on too long, but to answer one commenters’ earlier queries: Yes. Surfers get scared when the waves get huge. It’s all a part of the rush. I don’t surf, but I have spent hours on the beaches of Rincon, Hollister Ranch and even Uluwatu, watching guys surf scary big waves. Watching people nearly drown. Rincon used to get a lot bigger than it does now. Tarantulas, a spot further north from Hollister Ranch is a real heart-stopper when the storms hit and the waves roll in at 15′. And Uluwatu? Haha. If the waves don’t get you, the sea snakes will.
Seeing this movie and watching these young guys grow up and man up via surfing was realistic and enchanting. When I found out later on that the film was two hours long all I could think was, “Quickest two hours of my life.”
