It's not showing in Official Competition at Cannes, but J.C. Chandor's All Is Lost is nevertheless one of the best-reviewed films to have shown there so far this year. They say never to work at sea, but it both looks and sounds like Chandor and Redford have done a darn good job of it. I'm marvelling at the detail of the photography and the sound mix in this clip. And the last two shots are terrific. If nothing else, though, just a hint of that cerulean sea and I'm so there.
