For this week’s Thursday Movie Picks the recommendations came easy. I sat down, and just typed the first three movies that came to mind. All three are also a lot shorter than just one day. One plot is 2 hours, the other is a single night, the third takes place during business hours. So, can you guess what my picks are?
Not to pick all three from the Before trilogy, I’m going to pick my favourite. Before Sunset has our main characters meet again, after an epic romantic stroll in Vienna 9 years before. They were going to meet up, life got in their way and they didn’t. Before Sunset is a movie of a conversation that lasts for two hours, and it’s perfect.
As mother and daughter prepare for a night in their apartment, things get a little dangerous. A group of bad men break in and the two women hide in their panic room. Problem, the thing the bad men want, is in the panic room. Add David Fincher to the mix, and you got yourself a thrilling movie!
Lastly, a movie that takes place longer than the two previous recommendations but is cramped into a very small space – into a single phone booth! For me this 2002 crime thriller is sheer perfection. The concept, the execution, the mystery. It’s just a thrilling ride from start to finish. Plus, Colin Farrell is at the top of his game!
