2821. (DVD) The Lightship (1985, released June 2005)

2821. (DVD) The Lightship (1985, released June 2005) with actors: Tom Bower, Klaus Maria Brandauer, Robert Costanzo, Badja Djola, Robert Duvall. From the 1934 novel by Archie Binns. Lightships – stationary vessels that serve as offshore lighthouses – were once a common feature of the America n coasts. In “The Lightship”, director Jerzy Sk olimowski takes us into the storm-tossed, suffocatingly close world of a lightship to witness the age-old struggle of good and evil in a uniquely nightmarish setting. The ship’s captain, Klaus Marie Brandauer, must somehow protect his men and his rebellious son against an invading gang led by a man who is as cunning as he is without scruples (Robert Duvall). The trio of robbers, two brothers and their twisted genius leader, don’t reckon on the crew fighting back. Filmed on an actual lightship meticulously restored to evoke a now bygone way of life, “The Lightship” is a powerful and realistically vivid drama of one man’s struggle against the powers of darkness. Color, DVD-Video, Widescreen, NTSC. Running time 88 minutes. New and factory sealed! Never viewed! (M). $21.95.
