All is Lost

Dir. J.C. Chandor USA 106 min PG-13

2013 Roadside Attractions

A one-man cast and a script with no dialogue doesn’t necessarily sound like a winning combination. However, when the cast is Oscar-winner Robert Redford, and the script was written by Oscar-nominated writer-director J.C. Chandor, the usual doesn’t apply. By all accounts, ALL IS LOST is a thrilling feat of movie-making, affirming the young Chandor’s talent and proving why Redford is one of our greatest actors.

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest. Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.
