ALL IS LOST (Cannes Film Festival Cannes France 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.7|5.0 Starsìììì

All is Lost
has one actor (Robert Redford) and literally no dialogue; yet, it manages to hold spellbound attention for 105 minutes. Natural and realistic, the film takes us to the Indian Ocean, a damaged yacht, a bad storm, a capsized yacht, a lifeboat, another bad storm, failed attempts to achieve rescue, resourceful attempts to preserve life, and a deep dip into a hopeless situation with no possible resolution.
