don't miss - the documentary (for mariner fans or not)
I often write a lot of gibberish on here, but this movie really stuck with me and deserves a straightforward review.
A true tragedy, narrated by an icy, and haunting Tilda Swinton, is so surreal that you wouldn't believe it's true.
Immediately after watching this film I ordered the following two books that further expanded and enlightened the viewer/reader on the intricate details of this now forgotten human struggle of ridiculous endurance. Without question, this documentary is the film that has most affected me and still stays with me to this day - even after a few years of my initial viewing (though I do throw it on for guests quite frequently).
Also, do delve into these two books on this race to further grasp the depths of the human condition in isolation and the burden of facing impossible choices, choices that I hope never cross my path:
The Strange Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst
A Voyage for Madmen
