'All Is Lost'
The phrase "one-man show" rarely has been more literal than in Robert Redford's case in this thoroughly engrossing drama, written and directed by J.C. Chandor ("Margin Call").
The veteran actor puts his own filmmaking smarts to use as the only person on screen, playing the sailor of a yacht struck by a shipping container. The result is a tense struggle for survival that trades strongly and successfully on audience familiarity with Redford's normally stalwart persona. DVD extras: "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Chandor and producers Neal Dodson and Anna Gerb. *** (PG-13: P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
