All Is Lost (2013)

US 105m, Colour
Director: J.C. Chandor; Cast: Robert Redford

all_is_lostAll is Lost is the compelling story of a man who struggles for survival while lost at sea in a badly damaged sailboat. A visually spectacular production with few spoken words, the film’s elegant simplicity is only surpassed by Redford’s superb performance, who at 77, completed many of the film’s physically demanding scenes. In contrast to the overblown action of most Hollywood adventures, Chandor effectively employs concepts of “Pure Cinema” in minimizing plot and focusing on visual composition, motion and cinematography (Klaus Ming February 2016).
