Buried

An intriguing Spanish indie-thriller starring Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal) as a civilian contractor in Iraq. He awakes to find himself buried alive in a coffin, with only a lighter, a knife and a cell phone. Initially he can't remember how we got there, but his memory slowly begins to return...

In purely cinematic terms, Buried, set in late 2006, is an ingenious exercise in sustained tension that would make Alfred Hitchcock turn over in his grave.

In the movie's cheapest, most exploitative gesture - just as it is about to run out of tricks - a snake slithers into the pine box in which Paul awakens bound and gagged, not knowing where he is. With that gimmick, the movie sacrifices its last shred of integrity.

The use of 2:35 wide screen paradoxically increases the effect of claustrophobia. I would not like to be buried alive.

On a technical level Buried is impressive, at times blisteringly suspenseful.

A brutally intense indie that commits to its bleak premise and doesn't back down. Tarantino will cackle as he watches.

The entire story is told from within the claustrophobic confines of a coffin buried six feet under.
