    All is Lost is as quiet as "Margin Call" was chatty; at a minimum, you might call this film a procedural. But like the best of the genre, its relentless focus on the material and the practical also gestures subtly at a life of the soul, however battered. show more

    Redford, who can’t avoid exuding charisma, plays this role with utter naturalism and lack of histrionics or self-regard. show more
