J.C. Chandor burst onto the scene in 2011 with his debut production Margin Call, a sharp, dialogue heavy piece that earned the writer/director an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay. It’s therefore something of a surprise to see the talented filmmaker return with his sophomore feature All is Lost – which features little to no dialogue at all.
We caught up with Chandor ahead of the film’s Boxing Day release, as he explained his decision to try something to unique and different to what worked so well in his first picture. He also talks about working with Robert Redford – who stars alone in this memorable film, as a pensive drama that sees an elderly man lost at sea.
All is Lost is released on December 26, and you can read our review here.
