Re: All is Lost

I saw Redford interviewed a few days ago on one of the am shows, there are only three lines of dialogue in the 2 hr movie....

That may be tough to watch for the general population.....

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.

Tell that to the Producer of the Artist. One line of dialogue, black and white, multiple Oscars (Director, Actor, Picture).

Re: All is Lost

We have a Sundance theater here in town. However, my wife has already said she probably shouldn't see this movie (this was on the way out of seeing Gravity).

Re: All is Lost

I can't believe people are going to bitch about this movie. Finally sailors get a movie and there's bitching. Have you seen the crap that's out these days? And people want to bitch about whether or not there's a bimini? Good grief!!

I'm struggling to find it in a theatre near me. I'll bitch about that.

The container he hits is full of kids sneakers. Look again.
