Troop Ships for the Philippines

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 27, 2015

Maybe not the absolutely optimum camera position. Authenticity over composition, though. Immediacy too, and, actually, excitement. This is a very stirring passage! A beautiful craft, and all those uniformed young men going blithely and proudly and imperialistically off. Someone contrived to have the colours billow in the foreground, and then to have the film run until the ship moved by. Pretty thrilling!
