Viewing Journal: 1/31/2011






58) BURIED
(2010 dir. Rodrigo Cortés) 2nd Viewing: January 31 2011

A real nightmare scenario. I'd say my favorite of 2010's "People Trapped In Confined Spaces" cinema trend (See also: 127 HOURS, FROZEN, DEVIL, etc.) Reynold's conveys more than believable fear. I can't wait to see more from director Rodrigo Cortés in the future. With a film this engaging and visually inventive in such a tight space, you know he's most likely going to make something great further down the line. Just wish it wasn't such a downer. But I guess that's kind of the point.
