Empathy with an old man marooned in the Indian Ocean,
This review is from: All Is Lost [Blu-ray]  [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
What an incredible trip of a movie! I watched from a borrowed disc, but I was so memorized by this movie, I had to buy it on Blu-ray disc, it's not often a movie where you are completely emphatically attached to the main (and only character) comes along, an old tough as-boots old guy (Robert Redford) is marooned in the middle of the untamed Indian Ocean, with an indomitable will to live to see another day, he puts people 60 years his junior to utter shame with his endurance to survive.
Everything about this film fits together perfectly, the cinematography is outstanding, an old man alone against the elements, with only the beautiful sea creatures that we share this gem of a planet with, it's emphatically perfect.
The ending song by Alex Ebert - 'Amen' rounds it off in ways I cannot express in words, it made me cry, when all is lost, hope and joy arrives at the very last minute.

Disagree about the ending being full of hope and joy: I believe he dies.

Me too. I think he does die.
