Movie review – “Buried” (2010) ***1/2
I was mainly interested to see how they pulled off ninety minutes in a coffin and I've got to say they did it - so three cheers to everyone involved. After the opening few minutes I got used to being stuck in there. Sometimes the logic didn't quite work - I felt Ryan Reynolds would be calling up everyone under the sun, telling his story and explaining what was going on. But then I guess his character is stuck in a box and not thinking well. Some clever stuff involving mobile phones; Reynolds' back story could have been developed a little more I felt (eg his relationship with his wife).
