I respect what it's trying to do, and its attempts to overcome the constraints it gave itself. But it evaporates the minute it's over. It's a noble, and failed, experiment.

When did Robert Redford turn into the male Sandra Bullock?

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

All Is Lost should have been a movie that has you thinking for days; instead it ends with a brief sigh of relief and a shrug.

If you are a big Robert Redford fan you should eat this movie up since he is the only person in the movie. The downside, he is the only person in the movie.

Jostling around on the same flat level, spurts of interest coming but few and far between, "All Is Lost" should send one away with a dropped, unsettled stomach. Instead, it doesn't elicit much more than a shrug.

Redford is the film's most credible ingredient of all; in many key scenes it is evident that he is performing his own stunts.

All Is Lost has moments of beauty, but the movie as a whole feels detached, almost clinical.

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.
October 20, 2017
Even with the boring bits, it's a solid A of a movie, a top-tenner for sure.

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

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.

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.
