TV Guide wrote, "this version was shot all over Europe with well-known guest artists who ought to have known better, and directed by Mann who has done much better."
"Journey into Fear: Pilot's Quarters 1 and 2" (2001), an art installation by Stan Douglas "was inspired by the 1975 Daniel Mann film Journey into Fear," writes Rachel Taylor on the Tate website, "one of the first major films to be shot on location in Vancouver. Mann’s film a remake of the 1942 film of the same name directed by Norman Foster, which was based on the 1940 novel by Eric Ambler. Douglas’ video, like the two Hollywood films, is set on a container ship. Two characters based on Graham and Möller discuss and argue; Möller tries to convince Graham to delay a container en route to Vancouver, an act that would destabilize shares in a particular Asian contractor, leaving the company’s shares vulnerable to an aggressive takeover. These scenes, which form the majority of the video, take place in the ship’s pilots quarters. The diptych presents views of the sets used for filming these scenes. Both photographs show the sets from a distance, exposing the sound stage in which they are situated. The sets are empty of people but lights and microphones are visible. Both images show the cabin with a ‘fourth wall’ removed to allow filming take place. In Pilot’s Quarters 2 the cabin is seen from behind the pilot’s bed, while in Pilot’s Quarters 1 the bed is seen on the left side of the room. Douglas’ practice has always included photography as a source and inspiration for his filmmaking as well as an art form in itself. The large scale images of the set serve to highlight the artifice of filmmaking, laying bare the techniques involved in film-making."
