‘Spectacular’

‘Spectacular’

Almost a year ago I reviewed the book and mentioned that a Christian knew it was time to die and went quietly. The ordeal the rest endured after that turning point spoke in the book. I don’t know about the movie, haven’t seen it yet, but here is one review of the movies and a link to the book.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die, a time to plant and a time to uproot, a time to kill and a time to heal, a time to tear down and a time to build, a time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance, a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them, a time to embrace and a time to refrain, a time to search and a time to give up, a time to keep and a time to throw away, a time to tear and a time to mend, a time to be silent and a time to speak, a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)

(ft.com)—“A dead whale or a stove boat!” was Captain Ahab’s cry in Moby-Dick. It echoes haunting and unheard through In the Heart of the Sea, a whaling adventure — a horror adventure really — about the true events that inspired Melville’s masterpiece.

It’s a thrilling watch. Director Ron Howard and screenwriter Charles Leavitt harpoon the story, based on a book by Nathaniel Philbrick and the memoirs of two survivors, and drag it thrashing and flailing through imagery livid, vivid and spectacular. The prodigious Anthony Dod Mantle (Festen, Slumdog Millionaire) is the cinematographer. The editing, barely less bravura, is by Ron Howard veteran Dan Hanley (Apollo 13).
