Re: All is Lost

I read an interview with the director (who grew up with a sailboat, though didn’t claim to be an expert) on an in-flight magazine. He admitted that it wasn't the most technically correct film, but they tried their best. Some of the limitations were due to camera restraints – a dodger would have blocked camera shots, etc…

He also admitted that Redford didn’t do everything perfectly, but that was part of the plot. It’s about a guy who let his boat fall into some disrepair, he fixed it up and then pursued his dream – a little too late. So, the mistakes are part of the film, it seems.

Just what the director said.
