Moby Dick DVD Review



Synopsis: Ishmael sees his dream of a whaling voyage come true when he joins the crew of the Pequod, a sailing vessel leaving port in Nantucket. Unbeknownst to Ishmael and the mates, the Pequod s monomaniacal Captain Ahab is taking them all on a mad and personal mission to slay the great whale Moby Dick, an obsession that will open their eyes to the wonder and spectacle of man, of beast, and the inescapable nature of both.

Review: Ok, now lets start by saying that this was a made for TV movie that aired on the Encore network.   That being said, this is a great movie.  The adaptation to the original Melville novel is spot-on from the characterizations to the plot points and the tone of the film.  The acting cast is impressive, sporting such names as William Hurt, Donald Sutherland and the great Ethan Hawke.  This one is really well-made and a great watch.

Interest Range: Drama
