Unearthing Buried: The Making Of Buried; Original Theatrical Trailers.

Buried starring Ryan Reynolds: Blu-ray Cover From the opening breaths in the darkness, you are trapped along with Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds "Just Friends") who wakes up in a wooden box with just a lighter and a cell phone. We learn that he had been a truck driver in Iraq, contracted by a U.S. company to deliver supplies. There was an ambush, he was knocked unconscious and now he is alone in the dark and without the emergency contact number he was given.

Drector Rodrigo Cortés (The Contestant"), writer Chris Sparling and cinematographer Edward Glau have given us about as much room to breathe as Paul has and while Buried could certainly do with a bit more editing around the middle, it still works as an all-out thriller, plus it comes pretty close to becoming a reasonable anti-war statement as well. Of the many phone connections Paul makes, the runaround he receives from his corporate employers should inspire enough anger to extinguish all the oxygen from wherever you're sitting.

This film is easy to enjoy for its sheer audacity, but it is by far fom perfect although it does manage to stretch a single idea into a full length motion picture. And Ryan Reynolds seems to have just the right mix of acting chops and humor for the part. If they'd added a few extra elements a few more times around the middle, we might have been watching a genuine classic.
