Watched this last night.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buried_(film)

Hard to imagine how you could stretch the simple premise of a guy being buried in a coffin over a whole film and still make it engaging, but like Colin Farrell - or rather, to be fair, Kiefer Sutherland - in Phone Booth, it really works and Ryan Reynolds does a great job. Expected ending, though with a very clever twist or two. Recommended, unless you suffer from claustrophobia!

Great film that does so much with so little. I am a bit worried that it will age poorly on a further viewings though.

So if I wanted to look up war movies with that 1700s, march in formation and unload with mass musket volleys kind of battles from the Revolutionary War and Napoleon and ****, what the hell do I even look up?

Ya, that movie was so much better than I'd imagined. Reynolds developed into a really good actor during his career.

Spoiler for Spoiler:
Heartbreaking ending though. Gut wrenching.

Any thoughts on Paprika? It's one of my favorite movies, but I don't know if anyone else in here would like it as much.
