Re: " All Is Lost" movie

I just saw it like an hour or two ago. I think if you go into the movie expecting a sailing movie you are going to have the reactions many on this thread have had he didnt do that this is dumb this is stupid but if you go into it looking for a piece of moving artwork and appreciate it as a movie and see the underlying ideas being communicated and look at the acting it was a very good movie.

There were some glaring errors and some things sailors would;t due but that is only because as sailor's we know alot about seamanship, but this movie isn't about sailing. not really. The movie is about survival it is about the capacity for humans to understand and empathize with another human without words. that is a powerful message and it is one of the main things that the director was communicating.

The movie also is very powerful in portraying the many angles of the human psyche in survival situations. It's interesting. That being siad yes there are some errors but those were needed to make the movie more sensational and some of them are so that the story would be more interesting for example, no one in there right mind sleeps in the v berth at sea.

The problem is the act of noticing the errors immediately takes you out of the experience of the movie.
That is what ruined it for some of us.

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

Saw it the other day and my read is that as a sailing movie it leaves a lot on the table but as a movie about a man against the ropes it was very moving. I was surprised by the ending (not spoiling it for anyone).

The funniest thing is that there were only four of us at the Thrusday afternoon show and three of us were sailors! Afterward we were talking about it and we all agreed that we would have handled it differently and better (of course).

Just saw it. It struck me as being done on the cheap actually. If a tv show like the Deadliest Catch can give you shots of boats in the Bering Sea, you would think a Hollywood movie could at least do the same. It seamed like it was all shot in a stage/water tank.

Loved it. Far better portrayal of human life than most movies out there.

Well I just saw it last night and this is what I liked about it.

It is available on bit torrent now and the copy I saw was good, except for the fact that it was subed in Arabic. Nice screener, not a cam. Not much of an issue as there are not many lines!

Redford did a great job. He was more prepared than I expected from forum comments and very resourceful. Really all he was missing was an Eperb, but I guess that would have made it a short film!

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

I fell a sleep about 3/4 way thru for about 5 minutes. I couldn't figure out why redford was trying to kill himself. Looked like it was filmed in a pool.
My issue with the movie was that put the wrong personality in the boat. Meaning; most people that put to sea don't have a personality type as depicted by redford. Given his attitude he should have died about 3 miles off the dock.

I guess i couldn't get over that it wasn't a sailing movie. It's a movie about a guy with serious mental issues.
