Groundbreaking and refreshing in its stark simplicity, with its lone character, isolated setting, complete absence of dialogue (or monologue), and numerous long continuous action shots. Given its lack of complexity or flashiness, its ability to engage is all the more marvelous, as the aforementioned elements, combined with Redford’s solid performance, make it feel like you’re right there with him at sea. It’s an exciting, torturous, exhausting, and heart-wrenching tale of survival.
This was so underrated! Great film 👌
