All Is Lost (Drama 2013)

So this movie had a tiny bit of talking at the beginning and that's about it. The rest of this film was pretty much silent in terms of dialog. You get to hear the ocean, the boat, and Mr. Robert Redford do his thing, but yeah -silence- a very different type of movie.

It was pretty good though. It directly followed around this guy who is sailing on the ocean in a boat and has to try to overcome a bunch of obstacles using only what he has on hand. It was cool being an invisible participant as in thinking of what you would try to do yourself if you were in the same position. Personally I wouldn't be alone on a boat in the middle of the ocean. That and there're so many things that need to be done on a sailboat where one set of hands is probably not enough.

The ending was a bit dumb considering how much effort the character put in throughout the majority of the film, but yeah, gotta make things dramatic. You do have to be in the right mood to watch this movie or else it'll seem quite boring; no talking is weird.
Rating - B
