A video just like a visual haiku, one of those japanese poems in seventeen syllabes, with their unexpected elegance stemming from their brievity. I’ve said it time and again, I prefer a minimal cut in fishing videos, I find that the beauty of things speaks louder when you don’t outstay your welcome. There’s magic in ellipsis. Murray Brock offers here a masterclass in control and modesty. Perfect angles, grading, narrative. We leave the blue light of this Kiwi stream soaked in the mysteries of the waters and the man who haunts them.
