Academy Award-nominated writer/director J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) takes the helm for this tense adventure drama about a man (Robert Redford) who must fight for survival after being lost at sea. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
All is Lost is a testament to a great actor, an experimental piece of cinema and a bit of a bore.

Its lack of detail and substance might be aggravating to some viewers, but the blank palette puts you in a position to run free with your own interpretation, and I have a tough time believing that wasn't director J.C. Chandor's intention all along.
