Moby Dick Reviews:

When I finally saw this on TV recently, I wasn't expecting much, but it was even worse than I thought it would be.No redeeming details whatsoever.Even the unique results were bad.In the 1956 film the whale had a genuine air of menace.Here it was just a large white lump moving through the ocean.One of the idiot details of the film was that everyone addressed the narrator as "Ishmael".Both the ebook and the 1956 film made that plain that that was a symbolic name, not his true one.Queequeeg in Huston's ver is an impressive, dignified man.Here he is just a wild eyed lunatic.The novel is a morality play, and John Huston kept that flavor in his version.Nothing of that in this version. The actor who plays Starbuck is not even remotely as nice as the one in the 1956 version(but that is generally real of the entire cast),and fully fails to convey the real motivation of the character.In the book, and in the 1956 movie, Starbuck says"Our point in life is to deliever oil for the lamps of the world.And as long as we perform that task to the greatest of our abilities,we are performing a service for mankind,and that is pleasing to God." And then he tells that forsaking that to support the Captain in private vengeance is a perversion of that.But in this ver Starbuck seems only concerned that they are losing money.There is a sort of driving spirit in the book, that is conveyed in the 1956 movie,that is fully absent in this,nothing but a bizarre hodgepodge.


Usually I don't expect much out of films made for TV. They're seven acts, instead of the traditional three, which makes plotting difficult. They work on miniscule budgets, and usually test actors on their method up or their method down. Not to be compared with theatrical motion pictures - apples and oranges. However, the exception proves the rule.This is an epic saying of the Melville story. Okay, most of you probably had a terrible experience reading the novel. You end up asking why Ahab was prepared to give his life for catching or killing the nice albino whale. The respond is that Ahab and the Whale are inexorably bound in life. The whale is Ahab's grab for the eternal brass ring, one that eludes him time and again.First: Greatest motion picture score I've ever heard for a TV Movie. Second: This picture is filmed like a theatrical, meant to be projected on a huge screen. Third: My dear friend, Patrick Stewart who doesn't know how to give a terrible performance. Patrick, like the whale is a force of nature, not to be denied. I've directed Patrick on a number of opportunities and there's none of the nonsense you hear about the whims of nice actors. Patrick comes to work prepared and when he makes a recommendation you take it very seriously.I don't care about the another online reviews putting the knock on Melville or his story. What have any of us done recently that will live for more than a century and a half. That my mates is the tag of greatness. It's an elusive butterfly that anybody who gives their life to the constructive arts covets and strives to achieve. I give it a ten and defy any reader of this review to say me why it deserves a scentila less.


When I sat down to watch a fresh ver of an old classic, I was not quite certain what to expect,particularly from a TV movie. Having seen some of the names listed in the cast, I was hopeful. Happily, I was not disappointed. Not only was the acting superb, but the cinematography was pretty and the soundtrack stirring.Patrick Stewart was quite compelling as Ahab and his rendering of a boy possessed by his inner demons was excellent. However, it was Ted Levine's Starbuck who truly stole the show. He told more with just a glance than most actors can with an whole dialogue. One truly felt his emotional and spiritual turmoil. Hopefully this very fine actor will have more roles of this caliber in the future that are worthy of his talent.The rest of the cast was perfect as well. All in all, a very enjoyable viewing experience and a film I will return to again and again.
