You guys, I saw Buried tonight, and it was awesome.
But you know that while I love movies, I’m not the most articulate film critic. So imagine how difficult it is for me to find the words to talk about a movie the likes of which I don’t think I’ve seen before. Which reminds me that tonight, at the post-movie Q&A with star Ryan Reynolds and Rodrigo Cortés*, this dude asked some question where he actually said “other movies like this” and I was all “What other movies like this?”
I spent 90 minutes either on the edge of my seat or cowering in it while Ryan’s Paul Conroy wondered who put him in a wooden box and who, if anybody, would get him out.
Also I developed a healthy fear of sand.
I cannot wait for you guys to see this movie.
* PS: Rodrigo made a funny joke when introducing the movie, saying that if we liked it he was excited to be its director but if we didn’t then “what the hell did [he] know, [he] didn’t write it!” Funny and with an awesome Spanish accent? I swooned right there.
