Thicker Than WaterMusician Jack Johnson makes his directorial debut with this short but highly enjoyable surf documentary. The film follows several surfers on an eighteen-month trip to locations in the North Atlantic, South Pacific and the Bay of Bengal. While the waves aren’t gigantic like the ones in Step Into Liquid or Riding Giants, Thicker Than Water provides spectacular views of the ocean and surfing. With very little dialogue, the film could be viewed as a 45 min music video featuring music from Jack Johnson, G.Love, the Meters, and others. The DVD’s special features include a director’s commentary, photo gallery, and 20 minutes of additional footage. [Paul Ludington]
