||Is it really mutiny?|
Caine Mutiny film As a veteran officer nearing retirement, LT. Caine Mutiny review Commander Francis Queeg is given the chance to finish his Naval career as a senior officer if he can salvage the misguided crew of a worn out mine-sweeper in the final months of WWII. Caine Mutiny DVD for sale The rust bucket that is the USS Caine is a WWI vessel that's been commanded by a drunk for the last two years. The crew has grown dis-illusioned, and the ship is falling apart. LT. Commander Queeg, as the new Captain, tries to turn the ship and it's compliment astern by invoking harsh Naval regulations that haven't been enforced in a hundred years. Queeg however, is worn out too. He seems to suffer from a paranoia that grows as fast as he grip on reality adjourns. When Queeg finally snaps and demands a body cavity search to find an imaginary key so he can solve the puzzle of the missing starwberries from the galley, his authority plummets. Then, during a typhoon, Queeg appears unable to give logical commands and clearly endangers the ship and the lives of the men. The Executive Officer orders Queeg's arrest and has him confined to his cabin. The ship survives, and the Navy convenes a courts-martial to determine if the mutinous officers are guilty of "Mutiny" - a capital offense. The courts-martial scene is spell-binding as all the prosecution witnesses find legitimite reasons to support the Captain. It should be said that this was World War II. Hitler was on the verge of developing nuclear weapons that he was clearly not afraid to use, and was presiding over geno-cide. Even though Queeg's orders seemed unhinged, the orders were not his; he gave the orders he was ordered to give. Perhaps to uncover a spy. Junior officers do not have the right to demand the Captain explain himself. His well meaning subordinates had made a horrific mistake. Defense attorney Barney Greenwald sees only one way to save his clients from the rope: convince the panel that Queeg was in fact insane, and his clients had to relieve him. So Queeg takes the stand. A well thought out strategy by Capt. Greenwald sees the Captain decompensate, and quickly regress to childish responses as his basic paranoia betrays him. The men are off the hook; but that's not all. A **celebration** ensues at the officers club where the officers of the Caine regal in their Captain's humiliation. Finally, the defense attorney Greenwald joins in the **festivities** and tells the party goers that it was their disloyalty that brought the whole matter on. He recalls the funny stories they told, the jokes they made about him, and the little songs they sang in toast of his paranoia. But there's one peice of the puzzle missing: Queeg was sick and couldn't help himself, and his officers ignored his pleas for asisstance, choosing instead to let him flounder. But why? Why? What really happened? There was one officer who knew why, and what really happened. Only at the end do we find out who, and why. Devastating.

||One of the greatest scenes ever!|
The ending of the movie, with the Court Martial and the scenes of the celebration ever, are some of the greatest acting you will ever see.
