Robert Redford’s new film All is Lost opened today in select markets.
It’s getting major awards show buzz, and I want to see it. But since I’m not in one of those markets tonight, I found myself re-watching the movie that earned Redford a Best Director Oscar way back in 1980.
I love the way “Pachelbel’s Canon” is interwoven throughout the film…and the quiet when words are not spoken.
I love that Mary Tyler Moore took on such an emotionally closed-off character…and that Donald Sutherland provides just the right balance of heart and wisdom.
I love Timothy Hutton’s inspired performance…and the fact he won an Oscar for his very first feature film role.
And I love that, viewing after viewing, the movie still makes me cry. And think. And want to watch it again.
