Six Days in Paradise: style is everything

Gus Van Sant, Quentin Tarantino, David Lynch, Stanley Kubrick and Lars von Trier are renowned film directors of the alternative scene. They've designed independent worlds, strange stories and twisted characters to give birth to outstanding timeless art movies.

"Six Days in Paradise", by director John Vidor, is probably the most alternative surf movie ever produced. The universe of a reformed gambler searching for his ex-wife and daughter is unveiled in a completely different way.

"Six Days in Paradise" mixes Hawaii, big wave surfing, martial arts, assassins, hot girls and shark-infested waters in a deeply strange set of actors and actresses. Watch the trailer and tell us the story.

While Hawaii is the city centre of a complex story, action is filmed in a different style. John Vidor uses lo-fi scenes and sequences that take us to the 80's and 90's. Has he invented a new movie genre? Kitsh Indie, maybe.

There are two major Hollywood stars in "Six Days in Paradise". Michael Madsen and David Carradine play strange roles in a completely different movie. We could easily say it is a neo-noir psychological surf thriller made of guns, girls and gnarly waves.
