    The Essentials: Robert Redford

    This Friday, one of the most powerful films of Robert Redford's career comes to the big screen in "All Is Lost" (our review). Stripped of most of the things that made him a star, both externally (he's now 77 and his costume seems to have been purchased during a 40% off sale at J. Crew) and internall...

    Review: J.C. Chandor Puts Robert Redford Through Watery Hell In Bruising, Formally Rigorous 'All Is Lost'

    It almost feels like J.C. Chandor is showing off. In what is only his second feature film, after the chalk-and-cheese financial collapse movie “Margin Call," he sets himself a kind of exercise in filmmaking rigor, in the bare-bones, one-man survival-at-sea story “All Is Lost” and delivers.

    You could speculate about the reasons for it, but few could deny that there's something in the air involving survival narratives.

    Mill Valley Film Fest: San Francisco Film Society Losses, Whoopi Goldberg's 'Moms Mabley,' 'Elaine Stritch: Shoot Me,' and Foreign-Language Oscar Entries

    It now seems ironic that the first person I chatted with at the delightful opening night cocktail party of the Mill Valley Film Festival, just a week ago, was Ted Hope.
