    I rented and tried to watch the movie All Is Lost. Tried because I kept passing out from sheer boredom. The next dsy I forced myself to watch it all the way through.
    I'm sure I racked up a million karma points for that tediousness.
    Should anyone that dumb be allowed near a boat? Let alone to operate one in the middle of the sea? All I saw was him falling off into the water, running around doing on sensical tasks, (I especially enjoyed that he swam to his life raft in the storm rather than pulling it to the boat and boarding it there), his strange way of thinking and that he had his raft down below instead of in a locker on deck. No abandon ship bag at all. And why didn't his EPIRB signal for help?
    Any opinions or explanations are welcome, except, "That's Hollywood."

    Yes he did. He even drank his own urine. Lol. No point to that when you are on an sea at the time. Loved that boat.

    LOL! My very liberal boss said it was a great movie, so thought provoking and powerful.

    It was. But it provoked me into wondering why he didn't retrieve his shelter the nextday. Orwhy itsuddenly stopped raining when he had no shelter. He was smart enough to make a survival still but threw away the piece of water container which would have made a great cutting board and proected the floor of his raft.

    True, but he distilled his urine in a still, he didn't drink it straight. I would have distilled sea water myself. But that's just me...

    I will have to watch it again, however, as I recall, he stands and pees into a filter (not still) then picks it up, and drinks from it. (He didn't make it, no matter if it fits the story, I have seen these for sales years before.)

    He peed in one part and took water from another I think. I remember wondering where he got the faucet for his set up.I also wondered how they collected the compost they made in the middle of their city and what kept it from falling down into the sea.

    I know Dark. I was being a little sarcastic concerning the still. Sorry, I forget most people don't get my sense of humour.
