Years from now acting classes and scholars will be studying this film
for its power in bringing the immortal words of Herman Melville to
life. As an example of this power, you can watch this production with
your eyes closed and be very moved by the blank Shakespearean poetry
written by Herman Melville. Jack Aranson's CAPTAIN AHAB may be the best
ever filmed. This is a DVD to own and play more than once for the
insights contained in the dialogue. If you are a Herman Melville fan
this film is a must own. "If we hunt not MOBY DICK, God hunt us all.
I'D strike the sun if it insulted me. Talk not to me of blasphemy . Who
moves this arm if not God. I'm the fate's lieutenant under orders."
CAPTAIN AHAB "Ahab, beware of Ahab." Starbuck "And the great shroud of
the sea rolled on as it has for thousands of years" Ishmael
