Chandor has produced a minimalist gem.
December 26, 2013
[Redford] speaks barely a handful of lines in All Is Lost, but the film still manages to feel like an internal monologue, a conversation between one man and himself.
December 26, 2013
The utter solitude is almost vertiginous.
December 26, 2013
Chandor's movie gives us the Hemingwayish essentials and then some.
December 24, 2013
There's something powerful lurking in the deep.

All Is Lost is very pure film-making, set entirely on the water, without dialogue, just showing us the man's fight to survive from moment to moment.
December 16, 2013
It's the detail and precision of his storytelling style that makes All Is Lost so engrossing.
December 16, 2013
Even Redford bailing water for 106 minutes can be a bit much.
December 10, 2013
This is an uncommonly absorbing movie.
November 7, 2013
We get the predictable plot points - storms, sharks, close calls with passing ships - but it feels like a uniquely handmade artifact.
November 7, 2013
All is Lost is a testament to a great actor, an experimental piece of cinema and a bit of a bore.
October 25, 2013
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
The movie is rigorous, serious and well-crafted, with Redford holding the screen using only his economical emotional reactions and physical presence.
October 25, 2013
For all its formal austerity, All Is Lost also offers itself as a widescreen multiplex attraction, keeping all eyes glued on Our Man's dilemma, and every mind wondering if he'll manage to cheat death.
October 25, 2013
Eventually, even the effort to survive becomes questionable. We are all isolated, we all succumb at some point. "All Is Lost" studies that point.
October 24, 2013
Redford could win first Best Actor Oscar of his great career.
October 24, 2013
All is Lost is about how human nature rebels against death, even when all hope is vanquished by adverse circumstances.
October 24, 2013
Chandor and Redford make every moment matter in this fascinating film (despite an ending that will divide audiences).
October 24, 2013
Robert Redford's true grit and some wizardly images, not the script, are what make this one-man survival epic ineluctably compelling.
October 24, 2013
Even at the age of 77, Redford can command a screen, and he's the main reason to watch this man-against-nature story.
