All is Lost

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. With his navigation equipment and radio disabled, the man sails unknowingly into the path of a violent storm. Despite his success in patching the breached hull, his mariner’s intuition and a strength that belies his age, the man barely survives the tempest.

Using only a sextant and nautical maps to chart his progress, he is forced to rely on ocean currents to carry him into a shipping lane in hopes of hailing a passing vessel. But with the sun unrelenting, sharks circling and his meager supplies dwindling, the ever-resourceful sailor soon finds himself staring his mortality in the face.

Ticket cost is $8.50. The Colony accepts cash only.

    The bad weather made me think I do not wan't to go through an 'all is lost' of my own; so I chickened out.

    I have a weird interpretation of the film. I thought I'd share it. You may get a kick out of it. I would be interested in other people's takes on the film. I saw it as an allegory (yes, Google says I spelled that right). Robert Redford is Man (humankind, but for this purpose it's better to say Man). The sailboat is Earth. The ocean is the Cosmos. So the lonely Earth is sailing across the Cosmos. Man thinks he can use Technology (all the cool gizmos on the sailboat) to overcome all problems. But he can't. When he trashes the earth (symbolized by the shipping container), he causes his own doom. The water rises in the boat (global warming). In this interpretation, the letter Robert Redford was writing was to future generations, to apologize for destroying the planet. I should tell you, I think every movie I see is about global warming, so it's no surprise I would look at it this way.

    A very compelling and visually stunning survival tale of a man adrift at sea. Similar in genre to "127 hours", the movie is kept afloat by an imaginative script and Robert Redford's gritty performance. While we know very little about his character, I still cared about what happened to him throughout the film. The ending offered a final twist which inspired differing interpretations among the group that saw the film.

    Easily one of my favorite films of the year. A great portrayal of struggle and perseverance--no dialogue was needed. Excellent sound and cinematography. I like how the ending is open to interpretation.

    I thought the film worked well both in the literal sense and the metaphorical. I don't want to destroy the movie with some corny circle-of-life comment, so I'll stop right there. I will say it's a visceral and sophisticated film, though. Much more than a survival story.
