Cast Away

Cast Away (2000)

Directed by Robert Zemeckis

Here’s the thing – take out the opening section of ‘Cast Away’, where we establish Tom Hank’s character for 30 minutes, and the final segment, where he comes back and re-integrates, and you’re watching one actor for two hours. Any one actor who can hold your attention for that long is pretty amazing. And that’s really what the film is for me – I don’t so much care about that last section when he comes back, but everything before is excellent.
