impressive art but a touch souless

a disaster movie with just one man and a boat. no other actors or speaking., as a work of art its really good. and really well made. it works. but as a form of entertainment. i would of liked some dialogue even its just the guy swearing from time to time. anybody in real life on their own in that circumstance would of said something even if it was just jesus now what etc etc. yet nothing is really spoken, which makes it kind of souless.
redford is good but he doesn't bring the real human element to the film as you would expect. the anguish and pain he instead just seems very comfortable with his boat in ruins and storms and his life in the balance . far too comfortable.
but as a work of art which it is. then its great but from a enjoyable point of view i personally would prefer to watch other films even the not so good ones,
