  • Movies set in a single room

    Can anyone suggest movies that are set in a single building/room? Has it been done?

    Hitchcock "Rope"

    And Hitchcock again, almost one room..."Rear Window".

    Oh...and mostly in one building both "Trespass" and "Die Hard" as well as "Four Rooms".

      'Steambath'

      'The Odd Couple' is close. One of my all-time favorites.

      '12 Angry Men'
      'The Breakfast Club'
      'My Dinner with Andre'
      'Lifeboat' (another Hitchcock)
      'Wait Until Dark'
      'Sorry Wrong Number'
      'Dial 'M' for Murder' (Hitch!)
      'Dog Day Afternoon'
      'Airplane!' (anything on an airplane, like 'United 93')
      'The Diary of Anne Frank'
      'Das Boot'
      'Mister Roberts'
      'The Seven Year Itch'

        Phone Booth might qualify.


        There are so many.

          Night of the Living Dead is essentially a living room and a basement. A couple of exteriors, but those coulda been trimmed. Hell, even the basement scenes could be removed.

                Tape

                Three old high school friends pass the time in a Michigan motel room.

                With Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard, Uma Thurman.

                EDIT: Yes, a second recommendation. Your post was a minute before mine.

                    A few from years back that I don't remember that well but I think might qualify are TWO GIRLS AND A GUY and WHAT HAPPENED WAS...

                    A couple I'm even less sure of are DEATH AND THE MAIDEN and an old Monroe film called DON'T BOTHER TO KNOCK.

                    HARD CANDY is not 100% single-location, but the bulk of the action takes place in one house.

                    And PANIC ROOM, of course.

                        CUBE. At least..I heard they used one room and changed the color filters.

                            Not exactly all in one room, but examples of story-telling that fills in a lot of back story with limited locations...

                            A Few Good Men -- the movie has some other settings, but the stage version is pretty much courtroom.

                            12 Angry Men

                            Key Largo

                            Das Boot

                            The upcoming RUN directed by McTiernan fills in the story and back-story during a 90 page car chase. In some ways it is structurally similar to a one-set film.

                            Arsenic and Old Lace -- The movie version has a few exterior shots, but the play is pretty much all in the parlor.

                            Agatha Christie -- lots of gathering in one place and sorting out the story.
