Buried

Ryan Reynolds (The Proposal) is a U.S. military contractor working in Iraq who gets kidnapped and buried inside a coffin. The political setting doesn't have much to do with anything, really. The film, directed by Spaniard Rodrigo Cortés, is just an excuse to build up some claustrophobic scares. Cortés does some creative work within the limited setup (a man, a coffin, a cell phone and a lighter), but the little-seen 1999 thriller Oxygen milked the buried alive thing first. 95 minutes
