July 6: ALL IS LOST (2013, 115 minutes, Rated PG-13) – J.C. Chandor’s epic tale of survival had its North American premiere at the 2013 Telluride Film Festival. Deep in the Indian Ocean("1700 nautical miles from the Sumatra Straits"), a man (Robert Redford) says, "I'm sorry. I know that means little at this point, but I am. I tried. I think you would all agree that I tried. To be true, to be strong, to be kind, to love, to be right, but I wasn't." He declares, "All is lost." Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian called the film, “a bold, gripping thriller,” while The Independent’s Geoffrey McNab said the film was “utterly compelling viewing.” Alan Scherstuhl of The Village Voice wrote that the film is "a genuine nail-biter, scrupulously made and fully involving, elemental in its simplicity." After the world premiere screening at the Cannes Film Festival, Redford received a standing ovation.
