The Perfect Storm (2000)
What a strange operation this was directed by Wolfgang Petersen. Exceptional cast – in addition to the protagonists George Clooney e Mark Wahlberg we want to signal the presence of the always great John Hawkes – portentous special effects for what is instead an intimate and heartbreaking human drama in the heart.

Another great drama set largely in the open sea. The Lee adapts the novel of the same name with a personal sensibility an eye to the spectacle for the general public.

Captain Phillips – Offshore Attack (2016)
And finally Tom Hanks in one of his best acting performances, captain of a ship taken hostage by pirates.
