The Pestle


Ep 248: “Crimson Tide”

September 19, 2023

We concur with Denzel Washington’s “Crimson Tide” and discuss:

  • Cinematography, dutch angles for dramatic effect and for the setting;
  • Story & Writing, betrayals, conversations about horses, command, duty, and doing what’s right;
  • Performances, Music by Hans Zimmer, Random Crimson Tide facts;
  • and other such stuff and things and stuff.

It is even better to act quickly and err than to hesitate until the time of action is past.Carl von Clausewitz
