The Caine Mutiny Court Martial
The Caine Mutiny Court Martial is a 2023 American legal drama film written and directed by William Friedkin. It is based on Herman Wouk‘s 1953 play of the same name, itself based on Wouk’s 1952 novel The Caine Mutiny. The film marks a posthumous release for Reddick and Friedkin, who both died in 2023 on March 17 and August 7, respectively, and is Friedkin’s final film.
When a U.S. Naval captain shows signs of mental instability that jeopardizes the safety of his ship, the first officer relieves him of command and faces court-martial for mutiny. Greenwald, a skeptic lawyer, reluctantly defends Maryk, an officer of the navy who took control of the vessel from its dominant captain Queeg whilst caught in a violent sea storm. Greenwald becomes increasingly concerned as the court martial proceeds and questions if the Caine were a true mutiny or simply the courageous acts of a group of sailors that could not trust their unstable leader.
