Ripping Good Yarn!
25 February 2015 | by suite38See all my reviews

I viewed this film in the company of archaeologists and arctic specialists with some connection to the current Franklin expeditions, and its authenticity was vouched for. This is not a direct adaptation of McGoogan's book, rather a hybrid of documentary styles which come together to tell a ripping good yarn. I don't understand the slagging that a couple of reviewers have given Passage, beyond the fact that they have missed some of the nuances, especially regarding the Inuit.(Tagak Curley DOES have the juice to speak for his people...note the Order of Canada lapel pin)

Even if you have already read Fatal Passage, it is worth watching this film for its lush visuals and the historical and geographical texture it lends to the tale. Well worth the investment!
