Episode 111: Ghosts of the Abyss
It's Josh's birthday, and his wish has come true: to travel to the depths of the ocean to explore the wreck of the infamous Titanic. OK, maybe that wasn't exactly his birthday wish, but that is the topic of this week's Mousterpiece Cinema: the 2003 documentary Ghosts of the Abyss, starring and directed by Oscar-winner/cinematic titan James Cameron. Josh and Gabe are joined by Sound on Sight's very own Josh Slater-Williams to tackle this documentary, in both its theatrical hourlong version and extended DVD version. Is one better than the other? Are the scenes in the expanded version crucial enough that the hourlong version may suffer in comparison? And what does Bill Paxton peeing have to do with any of this? All these topics and more are dealt with in the new podcast, so check it out today!
