Few Words is fucking spectacular.
Anyone worried that there's not enough new footage, worry not. There's loads of new footage which is all fucking rad. But the highlight for me was how well the story of Candide is told. All the big moments are worked through brilliantly. Anybody who had never seen snow could watch this, love it, and understand how epic Candide is. But they manage to avoid making it cheesy.
As a rule, I detest listening to skiers/snowboarders/surfers talking in films. 90% of the time they just sound retarded. There's none of that bullshit here though. Candide has 1 line in the whole movie and everyone else is eloquent and to the point. And the point is that Candide's story and skiing are incredible
The music works great, and it's beautifully filmed. Lots of slowmo but it works well most of the time.
-dspin at Chads- that would hold up in any film today. So fucking stylish and crazy.
-Douglas and Dav losing their shit as they try to commentate on his 2003 Xgames pipe run
-the whole of the rest of the movie
Without a doubt this is a must-own dvd. I think getting it on itunes would be a shame. This is the film for sure that I would have if I had to choose 1 ski film for my desert island.
Oh and guys, next time someone makes a thread asking what ski film to show their non skiing friends? Now you have the answer.
The LEFT collective- FOLLOW YOUR OWN WAY
