Reviews:
4 stars out of 5 -- "There are lots of ways of looking at Crowhurst’s story, from a Herzog-style surrender to nature’s infinite indifference to a 1986 Soviet film’s view of him as the ultimate victim of capitalism, but Marsh and Firth wisely don’t over-egg the allegory..." - 02/05/2018 Empire


"Firth and his director find something quietly touching, even soulful, in the character’s wretchedness. In this somber tragedy, the real demons are never anywhere but right inside that boat." - 11/29/2018 New York Times
