More on Master and Commander

Ian Hamet has seen it, and liked it; Terry Teachout saw it as well, and had this to say:

No, Master and Commander doesn't reproduce the essence of Patrick O'Brian's books, which is the inner life of Stephen Maturin. It's a completely exteriorized view of the Aubrey-Maturin novels. But what a view!

Which is exactly right, and I wish I had said it.
