IT’s almost a decade since I first saw an edit of “Tapam” and it still blows my mind.
Remote jungle waters and huge fish don’t come easy at the best of times. But now you have these two lunatics in the aforementioned jungle water in float tube tangling with big tarpon.
What else is in that water you might wonder: gators, crocodiles, the huge hammerheads which eat tarpon, or that little beggar Candiru.
Ok Tapam kinda skips the whole concept of narrative but for a selection of crazy clips of close range hand to hand tarpon battles, gorgeous scenery and general epicness its still hard not to be blown away by moments of the film, which had been now released as a free full film.
