This is the forum for Movie and Film discussions. Again, our topic is naval warfare in WWII for the most part.

I got the sense from the film ( extended version ) that he was really a lost soul underneath all the bravado and hard bitten nationalism. This becomes really evident, at least for me, in the scene during the early morning watch change. He is awoken, he sits up and remains seated with his head in his hands for a while with this lost/scared look upon his face before proceeding to button his shirt. You only get to peek through the facade just briefly. As Meg points out, he lets the facade drop again in this scene too.
