All is Lost – the movie

I just saw the movie, All is Lost, with Robert Redford. If you haven’t seen it already, find a way. It is an amazing tour de force and a film you may not see the likes of again.

Set in the middle of the ocean with one actor and almost no dialogue, it is a refreshing return to the power film can hold when conveying a story through simplicity and poignancy.

Kudos to all involved, especially Robert Redford.

Redford’s acting has been called by some a stellar performance. In many ways it goes beyond that. Few actors could hold a screen and an audience for that long during such physicality and absence of dialogue and do so with such strength and subtlety. Bravo, Mr. Redford!

Personally I feel that if the Academy does not give this coming year’s Oscar for Best Actor to Robert Redford then I think the Academy has lost it way on its journey to celebrating true excellence.

A huge thank you goes to Robert Redford for the opportunity of watching brilliance at work.

And to the Academy – here’s your chance to do the right thing!
