"'Master and Commander' Is a Forgotten Masterpiece and Franchise"

As I've noted here before, Master and Commander is a very fine movie. This piece by an MFA in Screenwriting & Film Theory does a nice job discussing the film's many merits. (A bit of text but the main discussion is in a 25-minute video.)

(The catchy piece of music by Luigi Boccherini played at the end of the film is here.)
