A go for broke performance by Ryan Reynolds drives this intense, gritty, and extremely uncomfortable thriller. All of Buried takes place inside a coffin and the way the story unfolds is clever and original. Through a cell phone that barely gets a signal, we learn who Reynolds is and why he’s ended up six or more feet under. Amazing camera work makes you feel like you are trapped alongside him and through different angles, gives you both depth and despair. Not for everyone, Buried got buried at the box office and Reynolds was overlooked by Oscar and that’s a shame. If you’re looking for a movie that takes chances and is original, grab a shovel and start digging! Otherwise, rewatch The Proposal.
