All Is Lost can be tedious to watch at times but its metaphoric overtones about crisis-driven alienation and determination will certainly float one's boat.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

In any event, the film is a subtle acting exercise and a triumph of cinematography; it is also a tad ho-hum.

It is a bold and masterful film, and Redford is great.

Its lack of detail and substance might be aggravating to some viewers, but the blank palette puts you in a position to run free with your own interpretation, and I have a tough time believing that wasn't director J.C. Chandor's intention all along.

There's almost no dialogue and yet it grips from damp beginning to seriously watery end.

Even with the boring bits, it's a solid A of a movie, a top-tenner for sure.

All Is Lost is a testament to the possibilities of digital cinema: a film like this, shot in such close confines, simply couldn't be made with anything other than lightweight, handheld cameras.

As grim and hopeless as things could possibly get in a movie called All Is Lost, the movie is essentially about perseverance: playing it smart, staying safe and not giving up until -- well, see the title.

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.

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?
March 24, 2014
A commanding performance by Robert Redford with nary a word spoken. It makes up for the somewhat tedious running time.

March 9, 2014
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5

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.
