Nutshell Film Review: All Is Lost

All is Lost
All Is Lost: Don’t go sailing on your own.

All time is lost! I really was trying to keep myself awake while watching All Is Lost. But I was nodding off pretty furiously. Put this down to a combination of actually being tired, but mostly trying to maintain some level of concentration on a film that had nothing drawing me into it.

Watching Robert Redford bob around on the sea for just shy of two hours while every stranded-at-sea cliché is thrown at him got a little tiresome. I was okay with most of the clichés but then they just had to throw a shark in there. Well, a few sharks.

I get it. At the end he had to think he had lost everything to save himself. I get it. There was no feeling one way or another as to the outcome of Robert Redford’s character.

Save your time, watch Cast Away instead. Which is longer. But better.
