Ice Station Zebra (1968, dir. John Sturges)

A US submarine is tasked with a rescue mission to the Arctic, in part as cover for a covert operation. Oddly talky Cold War drama, through with solid technical credits and some fun performances, not least from McGoohan. The relative lack of action is compensated for in part by some great model work and an anti-militaristic angle.

Arctic (2018, dir. Joe Penna)

A crashed pilot tries to survive in the frozen Arctic. Terrific version of a survival story archetype that’s perhaps familiar to viewers. Nevertheless, this near-silent movie delivers in conviction, thrills, emotion and in a driven leading performance from Mikkelsen. Recommended.
