An compelling presentation of the poem
22 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

This short film has a lot going for it. It has Coleridge, Gustave Dore and Orson Welles, which is a quite wonderful combination. Orson Welles reads the poem in great style. He truly had an amazing voice. The director, Larry Jordan has animated the engravings that Gustave Dore made for the Ancient Mariner. So you get a chance to see Dore's wonderful art with cut out animation. Larry Jordan does not overdue the animation, he lets the illustrations and words do most of the work. Jordan changes the colors, pans the camera around the drawings and presents strange sea creatures. It is a very nice way to discover the poem as well as being a nice piece of animation. I found the video in my library, put out by Facets Video, so there is a chance you can find it.
