Technically it’s been one week since our last quarantine watchlist, although the concept of time is becoming more abstract by the minute. These quarantine hours have a way of blending together, and I have a feeling that when this is all over, the era of COVID-19 will have felt like one extremely long day — one were we forgot to shower and never got around to putting on pants.
It ain’t over yet, unfortunately, but at least we’ve got a fresh batch of high-quality, quarantine-boredom-busting surf films in the meantime. This week our staff recs include a nugget of British surf comedy in “The Outrider”, and bit of meditative surf cinema in “Join the Dance”, and a beer-soaked VHS tape of “What’s Really Goin’ Wrong” that was transferred to YouTube by the …Lost crew (it probably won’t stay up long, so press play while you can).
