Alone on the Pacific

Kon Ichikawa's odd and magisterial docudrama of 1963 (also known as My Enemy, the Sea), beautifully filmed in 'Scope and color, follows the true adventures of a young Japanese who sailed a 19-foot yacht from Osaka to San Francisco over 94 days in 1962. Alternating between scenes of this journey and flashbacks showing the hero's various preparations and his overall estrangement from his family, Ichikawa makes this story a fascinating study of obsession, often comic, and a striking portrait of a solitary consciousness, full of Ichikawa's graphic and compositional brilliance. 97 min.
