The Great White Silence Reviews

The Great White Silence
An English documentary The Great White Silence 1924, with aesthetic but horrific nature-beauty, scenes of glaciers, icebergs and some of the scenes a human-eye could ever see with the cinematography work of Herbert P. A true story of a voyage under leader of Captain Scott, to the end of the Earth, South Pole in 1910-1913. All the time I kept mesmerizing the hardships and conditions these fellows would have been in, to set the record for coming generation. Great insight about the sea-life of animals. I think the last journey of the expedition back home, was something that would remain in the history and would be written with golden letters, the bravery of people to lose lives in gaining something, they valued their life for.

Remarkable as a historical document within a historical document. Deathly dull on a purely entertainment level.

Haunting, amusing and beautiful.

One of the most remarkable films you are ever likely to see - considering the year it was shot the cinematography is absolutely stunning. Turns from being an impressive early nature documentary to a human interest story when the focus shifts to Scott and his doomed team who will die out on the ice.
