In John Ford's The Long Voyage Home (based on Eugene O'Neill), there is something else altogether that churns within the sailors' bodies--it's not treated as the potential for revolutionary fervor, but as sexual tension, and demons of the past & future.

Robson's Ghost Ship and Welles' The Lady from Shanghai also are useful meditations on the same theme. Of course, I just watched Anger's Scorpio Rising, so I might be a bit too attuned to that at the moment.
