Robert Redford gives a great performance in this one man movie about a man, his sailboat and a string of terrible events. Expect an Oscar nomination

There is very little dialog but lots of visual flair in this very unique film. I saw with a friend who just got his sailing certification and he said the film is very accurate in its portrayal of sailing and how to cope with dire circumstances.

I give it *** out of ****

It seems some people are beating the hell out of the "logic" in this film much like some are doing with GRAVITY.  It's funny but both movies share a lot in common with just one being in space and the other out at sea. 

 

I thought it was one of the year's best movies.  I thought it was just an emotionally devastating picture that manages to have a lot of tension but also some really depressing moments.  With that said, it's also quite inspirational.  The cinematography, direction and music score were all flawless.  As for Redford, this is certainly a wonderful performance and especially since he gets perhaps two lines of dialogue.  This here is basically a silent movie so without the lines we're just basically seeing the character's emotions and fears from Redford's eyes.  If there's not an Oscar-nomination I'd be shocked.

 

Tino, I'm interested in your opinion (as well as others as they see the film) on the ending:

Apparently the director says

which might be where some of the talk started.

With that said, the majority of the people leaving the theater today seemed to agree with you.

Thanks for the link John.  There were a couple good quotes in there from Redford.

I just saw this film and enjoyed it very much.  Very similar to Gravity.

I just saw this and thought it was an amazing film.   Robert Redford in a nearly silent role, but the show of emotions of his character reveal much about him over the course of the film.  I predict an Oscar nomination for best actor in his future.  Can't wait to get this on Blu-Ray....hopefully with audio commentary by Redford.

I just noticed this had an estimated production budget of a meager $9 million, and as of the past week has made only about $5 mil.

Truly saddening.  Redford is one of the greatest actors of our time.  He isn't seen much in cinema these days( he hasn't made many films since Legal Eagles)in a fantastic role that is both an adventure story, and an introspective character study.....and it bombs!

 

I truly hope he gets a best actor Oscar so more people discover this quiet gem of a film.

Yeah this one here just didn't catch on and it really didn't get to expand much since the numbers were so low.  This is why I get so pissed off when people bitch about remakes, sequels or "bad" movies.  There are many great ones out there and people just don't go to them.

Part of the problem is that it didn't play in very many theaters.  It never played close to my local.  Its BD release date is 02-11-18, which will be my opportunity to view it

It will probably get one last push into theaters once the Oscar noms are announced. And Redford will get nominated. Count on it.

SAG members didn't nominate him. That his own peers wouldn't recognize Redford's superb acting is baffling.

Its lack if appeal in the big markets kept it from going any wider. Not sure if the Oscar nomination is going to add too much business. Again, this just isn't the type of film that's going to appeal to many. Redford was in another good film tho year that didn't do too well. At work there was a "best of...." Thing done at work and I can't tell you how many people put GROWN UPS 2 as their favorite movie of the year.

I could see #2 or 3 but #1? :)

 

In all fairness, I shouldn't make fun of Grown Ups 2 since I haven't seen it.
