Complete list. :-(
170,000 sq miles of desert. 90 minutes of oxygen. No way out.
Paul is a U.S. truck driver working in Iraq. After an attack by a group of Iraqis he wakes to find he is buried alive inside a coffin. With only a lighter and a cell phone it's a race against time to escape this claustrophobic death trap.
I can be extremely claustrophobic, so this movie really fucks me up at times. It's extremely impressive that a 95-minute film, taking place in a single location with one actor, can feel so fast-paced and still so damn intense on rewatch (this is actually my third time seeing it now). Ryan Reynolds nails a rather complex role - you know, with the hefty task of carrying an entire movie like this on his shoulders - and the ending is incredible.
It's really a shame that this side of Reynolds isn't utilized more often.
Ryan Reynolds is a good actor with a really shitty agent. The guy has gotten a pretty bad rap with many of his films ether getting panned or bombing horribly.
But then something happens. His agent ends up growing a few more brain cells and pairs him with a script that can actually USE his talents rather than him doing his best to work with terrible material.
"Buried" is about Mr. Reynolds who wakes up in a coffin, buried alive with a flask, a lighter, and a cell phone. Probably a typical way to wake up for post "Green Lantern" Reynolds.
And the rest of the movie is him trying to figure out why he's here, what he can do…
Bloody hell, I was right in there with him - all the way.
Nineteenth watch of Noir-Vember. Every now and then one of these genre-films that takes place in a single, confined location - like this year’s Locke - sticks its head above the water. In 2010 this was Rodrigo Cortés’ Buried about one of the most anxious situations possibly imaginable: being buried alive. This is what happens to Paul, a simple man working as a truck driver for the American army in Iraq. Though not really being employed by or involved with the military, Paul is put under ground in a coffin with only a lighter and a cell phone by a group of Iraqis in order to get their hands on a sum of hostage money. The film heavily relies on…
"What's in the box"
"What's in the box"
No wait!!!! Wrong movie and that was just a head. Here we have a full live grown man called Ryan Reynolds stuck in a box (pretty sure plenty of ladies would like to have him stuck in their box too hehe).
It's incredible to think that one hour and an half of a man stuck in a box would keep anyone entertained. This keeps me on the edge of my seat everytime. Ryan's performance is incredbile too and makes the whole movie work.
What is more disturbing,it has probably happened to some poor soul
over in Iraq.:-(

I needed six cigarettes, three Xanax, a bubble bath, four days of mountain meditation, and a year of therapy to get over the stress and anxiety of this fucking movie.
God damn it.
I did not realize when I began to watch this film exactly what I was getting myself into. I was not expecting sitting for the entire length of the movie watching a man in a box desperately try and get help. I recommend this movie simply for the fact that it managed to make me feel more for the character than most other films and all I got to see was a man trapped in a box making phone calls.
By the time the end credits roll you will be exhausted but in the best way possible. Buried is a rare treat in the way it takes a simple concept and manages to retain a morbid fascination. With a script that keeps pulling the rug out from under you and direction that oozes the horrors of the situation Buried is a film to get stuck into.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Love these kind of films where they all take place in one setting. Also the build up to the end was tremendous.
You feel just as claustrophobic as he is as you watch this, Reynolds does a great job at selling the stressful nature of this film.
Opera singolare di Rodrigo Cortés che, malgrado i limiti di messa in scena e sceneggiatura, riesce a divincolarsi discretamente (nonostante gli spazi angusti) evitando in gran parte i problemi che un'operazione del genere comporta. Il film ha dalla sua una buona interpretazione di Ryan Reynolds, in un ruolo per niente facile e che lo vede protagonista assoluto. Inverosimile, ma tutto sommato piacevole.
Even though I remembered this movie more fondly the last two times I watched it, Buried is still a great enough film for me to watch it three times. Making someone with claustrophobia watch this in a dark and locked elevator can be a horror movie in itself.
only thing i've seen that i remember ryan reynolds was in. you did good buddy, i just forget you in everything else. really enjoyable film.

Claustrophobic, inventive and utterly stressful, Buried has no right to be quite as successful as it is but alas, it is a filmmaker and star at their very best.
Truck driver Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) is on contract in Iraq. When his convoy is ambushed, Conroy is knocked out and awakens in a dark box. Buried alive with a handful of useful items, including a phone, Conroy must find $5 million or a way out before his captors abandon him.
Up until buried, Ryan Reynolds, though effortlessly likable, had really never proven himself to be an actor of great talent. With this, though, he…
