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.
