Movie Review from

“The true wretchedness,” says the unnamed narrator of Edgar Allan Poe’s short story The Premature Burial, “is to be buried while alive.” After experiencing this deeply unsettling thriller from Rodrigo Cortés, you’ll be likely to agree. It’s not the first time a director has sealed a character in a pine death-trap — most famously, Quentin Tarantino did it in both Kill Bill and CSI — but Cortés takes the idea to its most extreme limits. For the entire 94-minute running time, the camera doesn’t leave the box.

There’s an apt story about the making of man-in-a-box thriller Phone Booth. “I love it,” said an anonymous exec, “now, how do we get the film out of that damn box?” As unyielding as the coffin it takes place in, Buried offers no such respite. From Poe to Tarantino, Dante’s Inferno to Wes Craven’s The Serpent And The Rainbow, premature burial has a stellar fictional pedigree, but no one’s had the stones to go this far before. With little more than one actor, a mobile phone, a (very full) Zippo and a few disembodied voices, director Rodrigo Cortés has created a 95-minute panic-attack-made-movie.

Buried stars Ryan Reynolds as Paul Conroy, a contract truck driver in Iraq who, much to his own surprise, wakes up from within the confines of an old wooden coffin buried an indeterminate depth underground. He doesn’t immediately know who has kidnapped him or what he can do to try and get out; all he knows is that the clock is ticking and unless he can reach the outside world he is going to suffer a horrible death. By most measures of common sense, Buried should not be, as a whole, the harrowing film it is.

Some worry that mobile phones, by abolishing isolation and jeopardy, are killing off the modern thriller, or at least slowing it down with the obligatory, laborious dialogue: “No signal!” – “Whaddaya mean no signal?” – “I mean I can’t get a signal!” etc. Well, here’s a new thriller that couldn’t have existed in the pre-cellphone age. This extraordinary high-concept, high-anxiety, low-budget nightmare from Spanish director Rodrigo Cortés is guaranteed to give everyone suffering claustrophobia a permanent nervous breakdown.

The urge for up-and-coming Hollywood pretty boys to prove their dramatic chops has led to bizarre career U-turns for everyone from Jerry Lewis to Ashton Kutcher, and now it’s the turn of newly minted A-lister Ryan Reynolds, who filled in time between flirting with Sandra Bullock in ‘The Proposal’ and slipping on the emerald tights for forthcoming superhero epic ‘Green Lantern’ by making an entire movie in a seven-by-three-foot box. Reynolds plays Paul Conroy, a US contractor ambushed in Iraq who wakes to find himself six feet underground with only a cellphone and a Zippo.

What I like most about this is that it’s really a horror movie about cell phones. And not the ha-ha-bad One Missed Call kind. He loses bars, calls get dropped, he gets sent to automatic voicemail or to underlings with no concern for or even belief in his situation. He encounters almost every problem you can have with modern communication so his shared experience of this universal frustration is what will keep you pulled along with the plot much more effectively than trying to imagine yourself buried alive.
