Day 34. Locke (2013). Directed by Steven Knight.

Locke (2013) score: 74%

I love Tom Hardy, and I love the resourcefulness of one-character movies such as Buried and Cast Away, but I was apprehensive about Locke. Its premise surrounds one man driving a car and taking some phone calls. Literally nothing else happens.

But boy it’s good, all things considered. Locke is a good man who’s made a bad mistake and through his calls to various people you’ll find yourself totally invested in his plight. It’s a testament to the man’s acting, and of course the script, that such a non-event of a film turns out to be an event most enthralling.
