  • Locke

    Anyone else seen this drama film?

    I quite enjoyed this. 99% of the film happens inside a car, with only one actor we can see (Other characters are phone calls). Tom Hardy gives a powerhouse performance, and despite visual limitations, it feels like a cinematic film.

    Some of the writing was genuinely great.

    Thoroughly enjoyed it and have referenced scenes from it many times. Memorable film.

      Really looking forward to this. I usually don't like these one man in a confined space, but Steve Knight is a great writer, so I'm in.

        It was in my neck of the woods for just a few weeks in just two theaters - wish I had caught it.

          Looks like I missed it too. Crap. Will have to catch it on DVD when it comes out in August.

            Finally got around to seeing this. All I can say is, wow. It holds your attention the entire time. Amazing example of raising emotional stakes in a contained location. Tom Hardy is brilliant.

            On a side note, this marks another success for A24 Films. They've been putting out a lot of good low-budget fare recently, including "The Spectacular Now" and "Enemy" with Jake Gyllenhaal, one of my favorite films this year. I'm glad there's still room for these kinds of movies to get made.

              Loved this flick and I want to have Tom Hardy's babies. I would birth them out of my penis.

                    It's certainly the best car acting I've ever seen. I hope the car gets more acting work.
