IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
Promising a cinematic experience like no other this year, with a film that’s all atmosphere and little to no real dialogue – Robert Redford, the only actor in the entire film, is mostly silent during its entirety – All Is Lost stands as one of the most noteworthy experimental films of the year as well as one of the most intense and heart-breaking.
