BIG WAVE FILM SE­RIES

Pasatiempo - - MOVING IMAGES -

This col­lec­tion of four movies features the sin­gu­lar artistry and dare­devil sports­man­ship of Laird Hamil­ton. He’s prob­a­bly the big­gest star in the world of surf­ing, but he has never been in­volved in rid­ing on the com­pet­i­tive cir­cuit. In­stead, he’s built his rep­u­ta­tion around rid­ing big waves. An­chor­ing the se­ries is Take Ev­ery Wave, a new doc­u­men­tary that traces Hamil­ton’s life, his most grandiose chal­lenges, and the many ob­sta­cles he has over­come. It’s by Rory Kennedy, Robert Kennedy’s daugh­ter, best known for The Last Days in Viet­nam. To com­plete the se­ries, there are two other surf­ing

docs — Step Into Liq­uid and Rid­ing Gi­ants — as well as the 1987 surf­ing drama North Shore. Var­i­ous rat­ings and run­ning times. Vi­o­let Crown.
