Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

My favourite sailing movie is 'The Riddle of the Sands'... even that has its issues... ie the room down below... but the leading lady, Jenny Agutter, was and still is rather moresome...

Me too, I watch that movie about twice a year.
I assume you saw the lovely Jenny in "Walkabout" too?

What was said that makes you say it sounds like 'bollocks'

Unlike all is lost, it doesn't have the mistakes all he way through it.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

Yep. More realism.

I also preferred the script: a sailor is alone and yet one is not alone. Sort of like watching Coppola's Wind and getting the same shivers: one can lose the race but we never lose when we live what we love.

I am not sure Robert is a sailor in his real life, is he?

Cheers,
b.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

My family and I just watched the "All Is Lost" together and I must say it was a quite impressive movie. I think the errors pointed out by many of the people on here could actually be thought of as part of the plot. After all most catastrophes have many many events that lead up to the final event. From the start of the movie he is at fault beginning with his failure to have a watch at all times (a requirement in marine regulations right?), to the never ending Murphy moments through out the movie, it seemed that the movie was meant to show "our man's" humanity which would include imperfection but also our drive to survive despite of those imperfections. To me this movie was far more about humanity and far less about sailing, but what a perfect stage for a survival film, mother ocean with her relentless rage, somber peace, and unforgiving nature.

For the thesis on whether he was breaking the 'marine regulations' see the thread under 'keeping a look out', it really comes down to those pro and those against single handed sailing.

Out if interest, what's the vote in your family. Did he survive in the end or did he drown?

I'm with you. I thought it was obvious. But a survey done among movie goers had almost %50 of people assuming he drowned. Don't figure

After your post I finally found a copy and watched it last night.

Not really a sailing movie at all, but entertaining enough on a wet day stuck in the cabin.

I didn't really see anything wrong with the room downstairs, after all by the time you get the camera guy and his super 8 camera in there

My ketch is a bit of a surprise to everyone when they first come in board. A number of people have referred to it as a tardis. It's 36 foot but really doesn't look like it has any head room or width from the outside. But inside its all head room suitable for probably a six foot six. I think the reason why is because it's a heavy displacement boat, sits low in the water with a reasonable beam. But also, apart from the front cabin and head that I enclosed, it's open plan, so it gives the impression of having heaps of internal room.

Re: ALL IS LOST: The Movie

Even with the inconsistency in the movie I liked it, although I think burning up the liferaft is the very last page of the survival handbook, right after jumping out of the lferaft and trying to swim to shore.
