This week's theme from Wandering Through the Shelves is movies that are set in a single location. I'm kicking myself for using Moon already, that would've worked perfectly here. Movies like this always fascinate me when they work. Look at Phone Booth, that movie had no right to work, but somehow it did. Here are three of my favorite single location movies.
The location: A Box, underground. It's terrifyingly claustrophobic and aside from Deadpool it's the best performance Ryan Reynolds has ever given.
2) 12 Angry Men
The location: A conference room. Watching this jury work out whether a men is guilty or not is one of my favorite things to happen in a classic film. I love this movie.
The location: a house. I almost hate admitting I like Roman Polanski movies, but I liked this one. I think it's largely forgotten too, despite having a wonderful cast and witty dialogue.
