Re: " All Is Lost" movie

WARNING: POTENTIAL SPOILER ALERT!

Awful! that's all I can say. No opportunity to be sold on the lifestyle or why he's out there. It would have made great contrast to the disaster at sea. I found it totally unrealistic and an exercise in everything I wouldn't expect to do. Poorly equipped blue water boat, poor decisions by the skipper at every turn. (his boat is sinking so he decides to take a break and shave??) Waits til he's knee deep in a major storm to set his storm jib. Don't get me started on his initial reaction to the water streaming in. Zero urgency whatsoever. It seemed every time there was a major event the guy was sleeping. Completely absurd is all I can say.

I was soooooooo looking forward to this movie. ..and the ending was as stupid as the beginning. Whomever said there was 30+ pages of dialog overestimated by 29 pages. BUMMER!
