WSR Detailed DVD Review
Reviewed In Issue 134 (Sept 2008) Of Widescreen Review®
Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz, Juliette Paskowitz, David Paskowitz, Jonathan Paskowitz, Abraham Paskowitz, Israel "Izzy" Paskowitz, Moses Paskowitz, Adam Paskowitz, Salvador Paskowitz, Navah Paskowitz & Joshua Paskowitz
Special features include commentary by Director Doug Pray, Producer Matt Weaver, and Surfer Salvador Paskowitz; the following featurettes: Doc On Health (five minutes), A Walk On Water: Surfer's Healing (three minutes), and Dave Homcy Surfing Cinematographer (four minutes); and 12 minutes of Outtakes And Breaks.
Dorian "Doc" Paskowitz decided one day that his successful career as a medical doctor was completely unfulfilling, and so he decided to give it all up for a simpler life. Doc, being more of a doer than a talker, put his plan for a happy life into action
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD looks like a typical documentary, with a collection of archive footage and new interviews in sharp contrast with each over as far as video fidelity. Resolution is quite good on the newer shots, and the older shots are generally cleaned up well. Fleshtones appear too pink, though, and compression artifacts can be recognized. Black levels are relatively high, but shadow detail is adequate. Contrast is balanced well and colors are saturated nicely. (Danny Richelieu)
