Director: J.C. Chandor

Deep into a solo voyage in the Indian Ocean, an unnamed man (Redford) 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.

Robert Redford's "All Is Lost" is the crown jewel of a great acting career and deserves all the plaudits and awards that will most assuredly come its way, including a much long-overdue Oscar for the star. Literally a one-man show, the film puts on raw display every speck of this actor's jammed arsenal of acting talent, accumulated from over more than a half-century on stage, TV and film. This is a celebration within a celebration, a star's survival with decency and respect completely intact in an industry not always known for either, and an actor up to the rigors and stature of of a monumental character and story worthy of the great literary works. One for the ages, this. And bravo!
