Scott Of The Antarc­tic

Empire (UK) - - REVIEW -

Up­per lip stiff as a pop­si­cle, John Mills leads a re­cre­ation of Cap­tain Scott’s cursed South Pole ex­pe­di­tion, a no­ble fail­ure that mir­rored the Bri­tish Em­pire’s collapse into a crevasse. As doom-drenched drama, it ex­erts a cram­pon-like grip, but spe­cial men­tion to Tech­ni­color wiz­ard Jack Cardiff, whose hos­tile panora­mas are so vividly alien, the ex­pe­di­tion re­sem­bles a trek across Europa.
