Who would have thought that boogie boarding had the ability to rock so hard? Dagraumar has a long, slow build up but right around the 1:28 mark, it reaches down your throat and grabs you by the kidneys. Because the shots are so finely edited with the score, it feels much less like a sports clip and much more like a deliberate and thoughtful art short. The calm shots are gorgeous, the action shots are thrilling, and the heights that boogie boarder Jack Johns reaches are completely ridiculous.
Dagraumar was directed by Allan Wilson. I cannot wait to see what he does next.
