All Is Lost (2013)

A refreshingly unique film, not because of its weird special effects or complex plot, but because of its stark simplicity, with its lone character, limited setting, complete lack of dialogue (or monologue), and many long continuous shots. 34 more words

So, this morning I decided to start watching All is Lost the J.C. Chandor survival drama starring Robert Redford and…well, just Robert Redford.  It’s been in my Netflix queue for quite some time, and I’ve been reliving memories of the months I spent in Corpus Christi, Texas lately, and it’s been on my brain.   846 more words
