Robert Redford, "All is Lost"
Speaking of one-man shows, J.C. Chandor's "All is Lost" is nothing if not that from beginning to end. It takes a special kind of charisma to command the screen for an entire feature, and while Robert Redford's movie star credentials go a long way toward achieving that, it's the little stuff that really sells it. The film is a study in behavioral minutiae that finds a legend far removed from the kind of work that has defined him, the physical demands on display throughout. It's a great near-silent work of art.
