In fact, the imagery was so vivid I had to re-visit Peter Weir's "Master and Commander." I like Russell Crowe - the Charlton Heston figure for the turn of the century. This 2003 hit is a manly adventure of the sea during the Napoleonic war. Crowe captain's the British ship Surprise in search of a French man-o-war heading for the Pacific. It's a great chase with splendid characters and stunning cinematography. Director Weir makes the ship and sea the central forces. It's a great Saturday afternoon movie for any ten year old kid of any age (I confess.)
Okay, now on to cooler weather in October!
