A vital, exciting piece of work from Mr. Redford, an actor whom you'd have been forgiven for counting out by now.

The success of All Is Lost is to be a physical film that ends up with emotional reverberation, right down to the last shot that engulfs us and Our Man in the depths of the ocean, with only a faint light shining from above.

Like Gravity, this actually offers the greatest story of them all: one person's fight to stay alive.
| Original Score: 4/5

All is Lost is outstanding and so the collaboration between Redford and writer/director J.C Chandor.

Frank G. DeMarco and Peter Zuccarini, dual cinematographers, gather gorgeous imagery especially those captured from beneath the ocean's surface.

Chandor never overplays his hand, and in doing so he creates a worthy portrait of a man in a dire situation that resonates with us all.

once Robert Redford is on screen, his muted, exasperated, hopeful performance is an exemplar of the physical. Our Man seems a man of reckless wealth and expansive estrangement: why is he at sea? Begging the larger question, why are we all at sea?

A commanding performance by Robert Redford with nary a word spoken. It makes up for the somewhat tedious running time.

Superb, a brilliantly conceived, first-person masterpiece, totally immersive and compelling from first frame to last. It's easily one of the best survival films ever made, even with Gravity dominating everybody's praise.

O rosto envelhecido, marcado e expressivo (e ainda belo) de Redford comunica uma infinidade de ideias e sentimentos com o mínimo esforço.

Mark his name down as one to watch. Chandor could potentially turn out to be as fresh and innovative a talent of the likes of Christopher Nolan and Spike Jonze in the near future.

This works just fine viewed as a stripped back tale of survival against the odds. The ending is the only moment where the metaphorical comes to the fore, and even then it's really just a matter of how literally you want to take the title.

This film makes an excellent case that sometimes less can be so much more.

A subtle meditation on mind, body and spirit that's imbued with an aching amount of futility and loneliness

The low tech nature of All is Lost accentuates the primal (physical) nature of this struggle, while the technical prowess of Gravity emphasizes its more metaphysical (and less interesting) nature

All is Lost makes the familiar strikingly new. The filmmaker and his star hold their nerve, refusing easy outs and making you look - and listen - carefully to a starkly pure piece of cinema.

If you're slightly intrigued by the premise, find the time to see All Is Lost. It's taking a chance and trying to give us something different.

Full of detail, the film is almost claustrophobic at times as we stay inside the cabin of the yacht while the ocean heaves outside, the wind howls, the boat shrieks... it's a unique work

Uncluttered by narrative or dialogue, Robert Redford gives an astounding performance - spending most of the film literally and psychologically hanging on
David Stratton

February 28, 2014
It's a rare example of pure cinema, and that, in itself, gives it a stature to which few Hollywood films these days aspire.
