There’s nothing like a good story
By David Wineberg
Despite the lack of special effects, computer animation and 3-D (not to mention dialog), All is Lost keeps your attention and your interest. It even holds off on the mood music until the second half. Until then, about the only sounds are the lapping waves against the boat, right beside you in surround sound.Unlike, say Harry Potter or James Bond films, there is real mortal risk for our (unnamed) hero. The outcome is far from guaranteed.Robert Redford is battered by one lousy turn of luck after another, but he just keeps going. It just keeps getting worse and worse. There is only one alternative, and it is always there for him. So to that extent the film is exciting and suspenseful. But there are no guns, no villains and no betrayals, unless you believe God himself is behind this torture.It shows once again that a good story trumps all, a lesson I wish Hollywood would buy into, instead of comic book heroes who we all know must triumph. Great stories have been sorely lacking for a good 25 years. This is a great story.These single focus oeuvres, like biographies, always let if not make the lead shine. And Robert Redford, at 77, is not just an athlete, he’s a fine, unstereotyped actor. Very believable. Another reason All is Lost should be on the must-see list.David Wineberg

4.5 stars… “This is the Virginia Jean with an SOS call, over”
By Paul Allaer
“All Is Lost” (2013 release; 100 min.) brings the story of “Our Man” (as Robert Redford is named in the credits) alone at sea. As the movie opens, we are told Our Man is 1,700 miles away from the Sumatra Straits in the Indian Ocean, and in a voice over, Redford tells us that “all is lost, except for the body and soul, or whatever remains of that. I’m sorry”. The screen goes dark and then states “8 days earlier”. We see Our Man waking up in his sailboat, only to find that there is gashing hole due to a collision with a container which appears to have fallen off a containership in mid ocean. And from there, Our Man’s troubles start. Will Our Man make it out alive? To tell you more would ruin your viewing experience, you’ll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.Several comments: this movie is a tour-de-force in every which way, the likes of which we don’t get to see very much. A lot has been made about the fact that there is no dialogue in the movie, but frankly I find it a refreshing take. How many people would dare make a movie without any dialogue? Gutsy call. Second, this movie is written and directed by J. C. Chandor, who made an intriguing debut a couple of years ago with “Margin Call”. Now this. Can’t wait to see what he’ll do next. Third, there is the bravura performance from Robert Redford, now 77 if you can believe it (but looking at least 10-15 years younger that that). In a very different way, this is reminiscent of Tom Hanks in “Castaway”, except in this movie there is not “pre” and “after”, it’s just Redford as Our Man battling the elements at sea. We don’t know anything about Our Man’s background, his life situation, etc. But we nevertheless are emotionally invested in this character. Last but certainly not least, this movie will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. I was really surprised how tense this movie experience is (and I mean that as a compliment). At one point, Our Man’s radio equipment falters and then comes back to life. Our Man scrambles to get it working and says “This is the Virginia Jean with an SOS call, over” three or four times, until the radio just dies again, this time for good. You can just see the despair in Our Man’s eyes. (Surely Redford will get serious Best Actor Oscar consideration for his role in this movie?) Kudos as well for the beautiful soundtrack by Alex Ebert, I will have to check that out.I had seen the trailer for this a couple of times in recent weeks and couldn’t wait to see this. It finally opened today in Cincinnati and I went to see it right away. The late matinee screening I saw this at was well attended, which is great news, as this movie deserves to be seen. I couldn’t believe when the lights came back on, as this movie had absolutely flown by in no time. If you are in the mood for a tense adventure movie that brings a fresh take and is miles away from your standard Hollywood fare, you cannot go wrong with this. “All Is Lost” is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Not Your Usual Disaster Movie
By Davis Hall
Unfortunately, the producers of this film (and there are a lot of them) either couldn’t afford to promote it properly or lost faith in the project. Too bad. Redford is great. The film is fascinating. The ending almost too beautiful.Some reviewers have mentioned things that bother them. “Our man” shaving? It’s a moment that defines the character, agree with the choice or not. The giant container ships not seeing flares? Well, they don’t. This is a film where, for an apparently competent seaman, things go wrong. Slowly at first, then with increasing frequency, “our man” just doesn’t get a break. A man who has controlled his life, loses that ability.Some people will want more excitement. But this is, on the whole, a very realistic, very personal, “disaster movie.”
