Buried- Afterthoughts

*People with claustrophobia should avoid watching this.

Buried (a.k.a Ryan Reynolds in a coffin the full length of the movie) is way better than I imagined. Heard my sister and BIL (Brother-in-law) talk about it last weekend and decided to check it out. I was not disappointed, albeit feeling really traumatized in the end. I had to watch stand up comedy to counter that feeling.

The entire movie is literally Ryan Reynolds in a coffin. Starring about 6 other voices, a phone, a torchlight, a lighter, some lighter fuel, a glowstick and a snake that looks like a black mamba. (If you watched Kill Bill before, you'll know how deadly that is.)

Paul (Ryan Reynold, duh) wakes up in a coffin with no memory of how he got there. He has a phone with him with the language in Arabic. He tries to get help from as many agencies and departments as he can and faces a great deal of questioning and the frustration which comes with it.

Since Ryan Reynolds is the only focus in the movie, his acting is the only tool to convince the audience that this is a good movie. He nailed it. Even while watching it on my comfortable bed with 4 pillows, the movie made me sit up, because of the intensity and emotions. He was able to draw me in and join him in the struggle to escape from the coffin. I could definitely imagine the resentment of being helpless if I were to be stuck somewhere so tight. Hopefully it never happens.

If you're looking for a movie to watch this weekend. Check this out.
