Even Redford bailing water for 106 minutes can be a bit much.

This is an uncommonly absorbing movie.

December 10, 2013 | Full Review…

We get the predictable plot points - storms, sharks, close calls with passing ships - but it feels like a uniquely handmade artifact.

November 7, 2013 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

All is Lost is a testament to a great actor, an experimental piece of cinema and a bit of a bore.

November 7, 2013 | Rating: 2/4

All Is Lost is very much Redford's triumph. His turn isn't pure disappearance so much as a brilliantly human example of cresting and plummeting, cresting and plummeting.

October 25, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/4

The movie is rigorous, serious and well-crafted, with Redford holding the screen using only his economical emotional reactions and physical presence.

Audience Reviews for All Is Lost

Outstanding acting performance by Redford, the only person in the film and hardly speaking for over 90 minutes. His fight for survival is believable and realistic, albeit sometimes a little slow. Without spoiling anything: the final resolution is a bit of a let down.

Never felt more appreciative of dry land before in my life.

Redford is really good in this dialogue-free film, but I gotta say my hat's off to the director. As I was watching, I noticed I was holding my breath at times. Really, an exceptional film.
