Puts a human face on the thousands of sailors deployed on the USS Nimitz for incredibly long periods of time. We get to know sailors at every level of seniority. How do they date? eat? wash the ship? entertain themselves? Ten hours long, but never dull for a moment. They are allowed to honestly discuss issues of policy and war and patriotism. In no way are the interviews completely pro-navy. Absolutely fascinating, and not just in a guyish "that's so cool" way. I may have to buy this.

8.3 IMDB
