Some movies that I like that kind of have that Desert Island feel and even are partially on islands but not expressly about being deserted on an island:

Mosquito Coast
Papillon
Countryman

ok i liked it. i wish penna's direction was less passive. i feel like films like this demand a kind of radical intimacy from the camera, an intimacy that becomes the sweep that carries these events alongside the performance, and this felt a little static. but i still liked it
