Descripción del producto

A riveting account of the life of Dorian ""Doc"" Paskowitz. Surfer, drop-out and sex guru, Paskowitz chose to give up on conventional life in the 1960s, instead taking his family on a journey around Americas top surfing locations, living life according to how he felt it should be lived. Decades later, his choices have split his family, with only a few of his nine children continuing his pursuit of an alternative lifestyle. The rest have not spoken to him in years, until they were re-united for this documentary. The result is a moving account of one familys implosion and a colourful history of the surfing scene in the US.

Opinión

Doug Prays wonderfully engaging look at love and family and the relentless pursuit of happiness, personal meaning and perfect waves. --The New York Times - Manohla Dargis

Insightful, free-roaming but tautly constructed. --Washington Post - John Anderson

The film is a restrained, straightforward report about an iconoclastic family whose pain and dysfunction play out against a backdrop of tumbling ocean waves, muscular surfers and golden sunsets. --Chicago Tribune - Sid Smith

One of the best documentaries ever made. A tribal family living in the midst of modernity. A feast for any social anthropologist. Five hundred years won't produce another family like this. I have watched it several times and plan to watch it several more.

Brilliant story of a fascinating but dysfunctional itinerant family who were, among other things, itinerant surfers.
The father seems to be the ringleader. It's been a long while since I read this, but it somehow reminds me of the quirky family in the movie "Mosquito Coast."
Because the author was bravely telling the truth, I didn't take off a point for what the children had to hear at night in their crowded in their camper.
Wish I remembered more about it. I suggest trying it, but you'll need to shop elsewhere because it's no longer in book form on Amazon.

An interesting documentary about the Paskowitz family, their unconventional patriarch, and how surfing became an integral part of their lives.

Sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing, but always interesting and engaging, this is a personal look into the lives of the eight brothers, one sister, and their bohemian parents.

The family, as unconventional as their lifestyle was, was highly regarded in the surfing community.

This is an interesting documentary for fans of surfing, for those interested in the study of family dynamics, and those who dream to live life on their own terms, without being affected by the outsiders who may judge them.

Sexual references and some nudity. Not really a good movie for the kids.

One of my all time favorite movies. It is so entertaining, i have watched it 4 times, and i still enjoy watching it. It has a little of everything. First, the Paskowitz family are about as unique as it gets. The father is a health nut as much as a surf nut. His philosophy is in line with some elements of the primitive diet type movement ie no processed junk food; believes diet and lifestyle should mimic that of animals etc. There are elements of the story that are a commentary on sex, education.....like i said, this movie has a little of everything. Some of the stories that the kids tell (they are grown up in the interviews) are funny, strange, unique. You will definitely be drawn in. If you like avant garde type stuff (Big Lebowski, Fargo, Something About Mary) then you will love this movie.

This was an inspiration to me. A doctor quits his job and gives up his house to go on the road with his 9 kids in a camper van. They surf and eat healthy. I saw this in the movies before and had to have a copy. I am really interested to read Mr. Paskowitz's book on nutrition, but it is out of print. Now I am a fellow misanthrope, wandering the world, teaching English, learning Chinese and discovering that a nomadic life is a heck of a lot more interesting than a conventional life. Downloading this was a pain. I think Amazon could make this faster or easier. At least I go to see it again.
