All Is Lost (Lionsgate, 2013)
In this gripping survival adventure, Robert Redford delivers a stellar solo performance as a man lost at sea. Throughout the entire film only a few sparse words are spoken, putting Redford’s acting skills truly at the forefront and testing the filmmaking talents of all those involved. Speaking of the experience of working on the film, Alex Ebert, the film’s score composer said, “This project was a dream—an open space to play in but also space to listen to the elements—wind, water, rain, sun, are the story’s other characters to me. I knew I had quite a task ahead of me: to at once allow the elements to sing and to give Redford a voice with which to, once in a while, respond.”
The result is a film that has captivated critics and audiences alike. All Is Lost was one of the best-received films at Cannes, commanding a 20-minute standing ovation. Redford also received numerous Best Actor nominations, including a Golden Globe nod.
