In case you hadn't noticed, submarines have been in the news a bit lately. Not so much movies about submarines, although there are a lot of them, going back more than a century. It's not surprising, perhaps, that submarines exert a peculiar fascination: like aeroplanes, they take us to a place we couldn't go otherwise, in a way not for the claustrophobic, and with the threat of a horrible death ever present. All it takes is one little leak. The tension and torpedoes make up for the confined setting.
