Cannes 2013: 'All Is Lost' Review

Sometimes you just get a feeling -- a hope, really -- that a movie will be special. And with All Is Lost, my gut instinct turned out to be correct. Though somewhat predictable in its overall shape, this survival-at-sea movie is really interesting, starring Robert Redford as a character we learn nothing about and who speaks almost no dialogue. It's an experiment that works, as I explain in my Screen International review.

(By the way, the above still is from All Is Lost, but that sure doesn't look like Redford, does it? I have no idea what that's about.)
