Re: " All Is Lost" movie

This was the review in Sail Magazine....

Spot on..

"The most anticipated sailing film of the year, of course, was a major feature, All Is Lost, staring Robert Redford's an unnamed solo sailor who loses his Cal 39 in the Indiam Ocean. Unfortunately, the film's creators made no effort to make it at all realistic, and any sailor watching it is apt to feel insulted and annoyed.
Redford's performance was hailed as oscar-worthy, but all i saw was a man who looked confused and aggravated for an hour and a half. I had the exact same expression on my face the entire time i was watching him. "

Re: " All Is Lost" movie

On that magazine that I was talking about, a German one, the results are now much better regarding the movie:

They divided the pool in 1 to 5 being 5 for very good.

The results are 1- 27.2% - 55 votes ...2- 5% - 10 votes ...3 - 21.8% - 44 votes ...4 - 27.2% - 55 votes ...5 - 18.8% - 38 votes

If we consider only negative and positive opinions (considering the 3 neutral) we will have 46% that liked and 32% that did not like it. How about a pool here about it?

Disappointing and boring....
I like realistic that could be boring, but this was just boring.

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.

An European major sail magazine is doing a pool about it. Till now almost half that had seen it find it gross and boring.

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!

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

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).
