11.13.06Borrowed I didn't really know this was three hours long until I started watching it. I've sort of been catching up on Steve McQueen lately though and hey - Robert Wise - so why not watch this... it's a navy story circa 1920 or 1910 or something set in china. It's very long and very slow and there's little to no action for the entire movie. instead, it's about McQueen's individualism and how that doesn't jibe with either Richard Crenna's skippering technique or the way navy-ing works over there in china or whatever. character arcs and subplots abound... it spans all four seasons... did I mention it was long?

yeah, not too taken with this one, but at least now i've seen it.
