All Is Lost

Item Details

An open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements after his sailboat is destroyed at sea.

One of the best movies I've seen. The direction is excellent and the effects are very powerful and moving. Redford is perfect for this role. At first I was disappointed in the ending but I watched the director's commentary and realized that he made this ending to let the viewer decide what happened. I see it that he is dying and hallucinates what he sees just as he dies. Logically, I think he has to die. Highly recommended.

I've seen an awful lot of adventure movies with a lot less excitement than this one and I've seen scary movies that didn't get my adrenalin going like this. It's a nail-biter, brilliantly done with a cast of 1. If bland is your style though, leave it on the shelves for someone else to enjoy.

An unusual film brilliantly executed.

I can sit easily through an early silent film but couldn't sit through this. Nothing really happens. He's on a boat, encounters problems, and struggles to survive. The only reason critics are praising it is because it has Redford, the founder of Sundance in it.

If your not into sailing or a ocean adventure/survival movie. Then this isn't your movie!

A pretty good story, a bit slow at times though. It reminds me a lot of the Tom Hanks movie Swept Away. The ending seemed a bit cheesy.

I don't think I will ever forget this movie. As others have pointed out (or complained about) it's dialog free which should be a problem, but it actually was the reason the story has such impact. As the lack of dialog and action progresses, the sound track moves forward to become another character. The creaks and shudders of the boat, the dramatically shifting weather moves forward into high relief and replaces speech. I would imagine that Redford faced quite a challenge with this script, and it's a tribute to his acting skills that he turns it into a triumph. For those used to the fast-paced action films cranked out by Hollywood with its emotionally manipulative musical soundtracks this movie will seem static and boring. For those open to something different: pay attention to the evocative sound track and the subtle shifts of Redford's movement from complacency to panic, hope, despair, determination to survive at all costs.

Want to watch how a senior citizen (Redford was born August 18, 1936, or 77 in Mar 2014) trying his all to survive the punishing ocean alone between Indonesia and Madagascar when his sailboat and communication gears were damaged? Never mind why he was alone, where was he from, what was his destination, was he a heartbroken man, whom he was missing during the desperate ordeals ... imagine falling into his situation in your old age.

Some people describe this movie as having very little dialog. Actually, it has absolutely no dialog. There are a few spoken words, but it takes two people for a dialog. It was a very sparse movie, but it is easy to imagine being in his place. You get a pretty good feel for how vast the ocean is. If you ever feel that you've had one of those days when everything goes wrong, just watch this movie and you won't feel so bad.

from IMDB: Our Man: 13th of July, 4:50 pm. I'm sorry... I know that means little at this point, but I am. I tried, I think you would all agree that I tried. To be true, to be strong, to be kind, to love, to be right. But I wasn't. And I know you knew this. In each of your ways. And I am sorry. All is lost here... except for soul and body... that is, what's left of them... and a half-day's ration. It's inexcusable really, I know that now. How it could have taken this long to admit that I'm not sure... but it did. I fought 'til the end, I'm not sure what this worth, but know that I did. I have always hoped for more for you all... I will miss you. I'm sorry.
