Buried, 2010

This movie has a very interesting concept, maybe not as far as plot goes but definitely from a film making angle. I heard mixed things about it back in the day, but had wanted to see it just the same. Finally I’ve gotten around to it, and.. well, it wasn’t great. The entire casting budget obviously went to Ryan Reynolds because every┬ásingle person that he talks to on the phone sounds like a cardboard cutout. And that’s some feat. The horribly obvious ending (with probably the worst voice acting/dialogue in the entire film, when the agent breaks the news, hahaha) certainly didn’t things either. But those two points aside, it wasn’t too bad, and for an experiment in film making… yeah, good effort.
