FROM THIS EPISODE

Captain Phillips is based on a book by the merchant mariner Richard Phillips, whose container ship was hijacked by Somali pirates in 2009. The film is an exciting entertainment that makes us feel good about the outcome, and about the reach of American power, rather than its limits. Yet the narrative container is far from full.
