Chandor has produced a minimalist gem.

February 28, 2014 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

[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.

The utter solitude is almost vertiginous.

Chandor's movie gives us the Hemingwayish essentials and then some.

December 26, 2013 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

There's something powerful lurking in the deep.

December 24, 2013 | Rating: 3/5

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.

Audience Reviews for All Is Lost

Outstanding acting performance by Redford, the only person in the film and hardly speaking for over 90 minutes. His fight for survival is believable and realistic, albeit sometimes a little slow. Without spoiling anything: the final resolution is a bit of a let down.

Redford is really good in this dialogue-free film, but I gotta say my hat's off to the director. As I was watching, I noticed I was holding my breath at times. Really, an exceptional film.
