Recently we watched Moby Dick in class. At first i was expecting a stupid, boring whale hunt that displayed no emotion whatsoever. But to my surprise the movie was very intriguing. The first impression i got of the movie was what i described i was expecting but as their journey to hunt down this beast furthered i began to see something.
I examined the captain’s sheer obsession to hunt down this whale. He was willing to risk everything just to kill this thing.It drove him mad, to insanity. His entire life revolved around the giant whale and in the end he lost everything due to obsession.
