Re: " All Is Lost" movie

I Started this post and finally saw the movie...The previous writer is correct: Redford is a bum, and the movie isn't very good. Our sailnet sailors have done a good job finding all the defects. I can add some others: Where was his West Marine life vest? He's jumping around in mid Indian Ocean without a life vest? Was there no engine? Why was it always either a flat calm or a raging storm? He only used his signal mirror to look at himself! Why that silly wave as a ship passed by? He held the Sextant wrong! A real sailor would have steered his boat thru that storm and there wouldn"t have been any roll-over and A real sailor would have sold all those sneakers in Sumartra...
