All Is Lost starring Robert Redford; Fido's after

After 2 months, I can finally see this film.  If anyone else hasn't seen it yet or wants to see it again, I hope you can join me. 

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man wakes to find his 39-foot yacht taking on water after a collision with a shipping container left floating on the high seas. Academy Award® winner Robert Redford stars in this open-water thriller about one man's battle for survival against the elements. Written and directed by J.C. Chandor (MARGIN CALL) with a musical score by Alex Ebert (Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros), the film is a gripping, visceral and powerfully moving tribute to ingenuity and resilience.  USA, 2013, 106 min., PG-13, DCP

Fido's after for those interested in post film discussion. It's across from Boscos and Sam's. My cell# is below if you don't spot us.

Parking information:

—Parking's always free in the Belcourt's lot when you're attending a movie (and do note that meters in Hillsboro Village are free on weekends, because there are times the Belcourt lot is completely full). However, you will need to get a parking pass.

—If you buy your ticket online and choose the "print at home" option, you'll have a parking pass attached to your ticket.

—If you buy your ticket at the box office, the Belcourt will actually give you a pass you can put on your dashboard (so you don't have to go back to the paystation and enter a code).

Derek will be in the lobby seated at a table at 12:40 p.m. until 12:45 p.m.  If you don't spot us or arrive later, call or text me at [masked]. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at.

 “Chandor delivers pure cinema. Thrilling and adventuresome, this is a career highlight from the uniquely sympathetic Robert Redford.” —Jordan Hoffman, Film.Com

“Even as ALL IS LOST expands Chandor's range with a far more engaging and determined work, the true auteur… is Redford himself. As the camera hovers inches from his iconic blue eyes, the actor takes hold of the material and infuses it with a mortality that demands no explanatory dialogue.” —Eric Kohn, indieWIRE

    Here's a pretty good article about the ending of the film.

    I thought it was pretty interesting what the director said about the end:

    "There are 21 frames of white right at the last moment that I put in there and that’s a little unusual because it lights up the theater in a weird way. But in my mind, it was a way of cementing the end of the film and locking it in your mind, so it’s your film. I’m handing it over. Hopefully, you’re learning something about yourself and starting to think about that."
