When Crusoe comes up from the hull of the ship, after salvaging provisions, there is a CINDER BLOCK in the frame behind Mr. Quinns "Crusoe" character. Cinder blocks were not used until the 1920's. See more »
"Crusoe" came on in the middle of the night on Multiplex. Do remember the buzz in 88 before it was released. Surprised it didn't do better in the American market.
Optics are stunningly beautiful, sets appear authentic to my unprofessional eye - and Serbia is absolutely gorgeous. Sinful what has happened to that country.
Beginning scenes reminiscent of recent films such as "12 Years A Slave" and others. Painful to watch, but a necessary back story. Agree with previous reviews that this version of Daniel Defoe's story conveys well the isolation, desperation and redemption of man. Good on director Caleb Deschanel.
Thought it was a bit too convenient our hero just happened to retrieve a razor, soap and other necessities from the wreck. And especially, his ship-launching skills were a wonder to behold.
Loved Aiden Quinn's interaction with the ship's dog, especially compared to his first encounter with Hepburn Graham. Telling.
