Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread
I just watched it myself, also avoiding all of these threads so as not to spoil it.
My habit after watching a movie is to go to Wikipedia and read all about it. I was surprised to read how well it was received by critics and scored pretty high on its reviews. I'm just a noob, so a lot of the technical stuff went past me, but I could not get over the fact that he never once reached for a life vest....especially when jumping onto the container. I think the other aspect that bothered me was I didn't see any emotional outburst, save for the one word on the life raft. I kept saying to myself as I watched it "Really? He's not going to yell because of what just happened?"
When his boat was hit initially, he just kind of casually looks over the water pouring into the boat.....hmmm, well that's something you don't see every day. I also thought that while he was in the water with the life raft aflame, he should probably hold on to see if it actually attracts attention before sinking...
It was good, but I won't watch it again. Many thanks to the Pirate Bay...
Kudos to Redford for doing his own stunts, though.
