Cinematography by Bruce Surtees. "Desire" list. Perhaps the best North-American movie ever filmed in coastal areas - i did not see all and surely i'm forgetting some -, in my piece of favorite land, California, and with a trio of surfers to make jaw-dropping, among other anatomical parts with an equal penchant for admiration. An epic that in my imagination is always doing a tangent to a porn to (be)come.
A much better film than American Graffiti this cover all the usual Milius themes and is a hugely underated movie
You may not like the directors politcs but you cant take away from the fact this is the best movie about sufing and growing up ever made
