Re: One Last "All is Lost " thread

So we are watching All is Lost (my second time) right now. If you look closely, you can see the green flash when the sun sets....

That is actually a very concise way to express a true fact about "affording" a boat!

That's great!! Never saw this series before. All time keeper of a line from CK.... "I can't afford this yacht. You shouldn't buy a yacht, unless you can afford ten yachts".

As for the movie- wow! This thread has legs! More so than the movie.

Now that I know a stinkpotter didn't like the film, it's growing on me.

I'd stick with the comedy; that he clearly knows how to do.
Yeah...I gave up on the water anchors years ago. Could never get them to bite!
Let's hope he meant a sea anchor. It's been a while, but I don't remember that being one of the film's many issues.

C.K. also said he would never take his yacht out in the rain, and that if he did he would be out of his depth (as in the picture!).
Why Louis? Afraid the boat would get wet? A gale, maybe...but rain? Especially on that party barge. You'd have to go out of your way to even feel a drop!

How's that saying go? Glass houses are kettles or something like that? Anyone who can work a flare gun in the ocean ought to be able to read a tide book???

Well, that's sort of a comical critique. Louis C.K. is hilariously funny, but he really can't hold himself out as some ocean going passage making expert.

Apparently he does own a boat, though.
