Captain Phillips may be an excellent film but I wouldn't know. I didn't get to see the end. Neil Morris says "Greengrass largely stills his trademark camera-in-a-blender..." I completely disagree. Actually it's more like camera in a food processor. The camera starts moving, pitching, yawing, rolling, and shaking at the opening frame and relentlessly never stops. I don't think Greengrass has ever heard of a tripod or a Steadicam.
Anyway it was too much for me, I lost it just before the Seals arrive. The staff at the theater were very gracious. They gave my wife and I two passes for another time. I'll try to see it again, but fortified with Dramamine. You have been warned!!!!
