A Personal History of the Australian Surf

Basically a home movie in which theatre director Blakemore traces his graduation from Bondi Beach to National Theatre. Wryly subtitled 'the confessions of a straight poofter', it focuses on what seems to be Australia's national hang-up: dad's macho indoctrinations versus sonny's artistic leanings. Engaging enough, and mercifully (or sadly, depending on point of view) short on surfing spectacle.
