My movie choice this week is sure to get some boo’s, simply because the entire film takes place in a single setting. This week, I decided to watch Buried, a 2010 psychological thriller that stars Ryan Reynolds. The movie is simple in essence, but director Rodrigo Cortes does an amazing job in creating a tense, taut thriller.
Reynolds plays Paul Conroy, a truck driver in Iraq that wakes up in a coffin having no memory of how he got there in the first place. The entire film takes place in the coffin that Reynolds is buried alive in, and it will have you holding your breath until the bitter end. I don’t want to give away too much information, because in reality there isn’t much information to give. Conroy is equipped with certain tools that can help with his survival, but oxygen is running out. Will he make it out alive?
This trailer gives you a taste of what to expect:
I found this film to be brilliant. I usually enjoy movies that take place largely in one setting, so I was eager to watch. This movie will truly have you on the edge of your seat, and with only a meager 94 minute running time, you can easily fit this movie into your busy schedule. Put this movie on your Netflix movie queue immediately if you enjoy simple setting films in which the acting drives the film forward. This isn’t pretty like Avatar, but it definitely shows sentiment to what us as Americans have gone through in the past 10 years. I have to believe that this was a passion project for Reynolds, because he is such a high profile star that is a part of a movie with such a small budget.
So make sure you check out Buried. You might love it, you might hate it. This is a high quality film with little flash that is sure to be enjoyed by everyone in the family. (That can watch an R-rated film)
What did you think of Buried? What should I watch next? If you want some other single setting movies please comment and I’ll definitely give you some suggestions.
