All Is Lost

If you've taken the time to see Margin Call, the financial thriller from last year, hopefully you discovered a striking, intriguing, sleek drama with intricate writing/directing. Up-and-coming filmmaker J.C. Chandor made his debut with Margin Call and it impressed Sundance founder Robert Redford so much when it played at the festival (early 2011) that he signed him up for his follow-up. Chander was drafted by Redford to write a film for him, and the result is All Is Lost, a lost a sea story which just finished shooting. I can't rightly say this is a first look at Redford, because you can barely tell that's him, but it's worth seeing anyway.

All Is Lost with Robert Redford

Chandor's All Is Lost is a "man vs. nature" drama, apparently starring only Redford himself. It looks like his boat hits a storm, as details only say it's about "getting lost at sea and struggling against the elements to stay alive" or "a journey of one man's fight to survive." Chandor and Redford just finished shooting at Baja Studios in Rosarito, Mexico in their water tank. It was produced by Before The Door Pictures' Neal Dodson & Washington Square Films' Anna Gerb with Justin Nappi & Teddy Schwarzman. Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions will release All Is Lost, but don't have a date yet. We expect it to premiere at Sundance next year.

Not going to premiere at Sundance. Redford and Chandor would never do that. Too weird. I'll bet it's Toronto next year for awards season.

is this in the same vein as "castaway"?.....because that would be great!...... or those awful movies where people are floating in the water - because that would suck.
