BURIED (2010)
A man is caught in a desperate race against time in this claustrophobic thriller from director Rodrigo Cortes. An American truck driver who has been contracted to work in Iraq is captured by insurgent guerrillas who intend to hold him hostage. Paul is struck unconscious, put into a coffin-like box, and buried, and when he comes to, all he has to help him get out is a lighter, a mobile phone, a pen, and a knife. Trapped underground with a limited supply of air, Paul frantically calls his family, his employer, and the American military, trying to remain calm as his chances of survival slip further away with each minute.
Refreshing take on the high-concept thriller. Fans of 'Phone Booth' should find it rewarding viewing. It's funnier than you'd think too...
