Movie Review: The old Redford and the sea

Wednesday, November 27, 2013 by PAUL WILLISTEIN in Focus

"All Is Lost" is a harrowing tale about a sailor lost at sea.

What's the big deal about that, you might say?

The big deal is that the sailor is played by none other than Robert Redford.

And, at 77, the filming of "All Is Lost" was also likely a harrowing experience for Redford.

"All Is Lost" is all Redford. The character he plays, simply called "Our Man," is the only person in the film, and he's on-screen for virtually the entire film.

The film begins with a voice-over narration by Redford and then a title card tells us it's "Eight Days Earlier."
