Film Actually Ep011 (103) – Embedded in Our Souls

Hosts: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Shane Gregory

Welcome to the Film Actually podcast, your weekly dose of movie geek. Film Actually is the official movie podcast of geekactually.com.

This week David McVay and Josh Philpott are joined by Tech Actually regular Shane Gregory for a review of, ‘Buried’ starring Ryan Reynolds in a box. We also have some Entertainment Buzz including the new trailer for Danny Boyle’s ‘127 Hours’ and the full trailer for ‘True Grit’ and this week’s Lists of Five is five claustrophobic films. Shane Gregory is our regular co-host on Tech Actually and the tech guy for DLC Live every Tuesday at rawDLC.com.

*Update 12/11/2011 – Film Actually was a split off from the main Geek Actually show and originally maintained numbering continuity with that show. That logic no longer works as the shows have become two unique entities, so we have gone back and re-numbered the Film Actually shows to reflect their true episode number. This show is now officially episode 11 but when you listen to the show you will hear it referred to as episode 103, this is why. Sorry about any confusion or inconvenience.

Film Actually is recorded live every Saturday at approximately 1.15pm (AEST UTC +10) at geekactually.com/live

Your show notes:

Feature Film Review

‘Buried’ directed by Rodrigo Cortés and written by Chris Sparling. It stars Ryan Reynolds in a box. It does have some good voice performances on the phone though from Stephen Tobolowsky, Samantha Mathis, Robert Paterson and José Luis Garcia Pérez.

The plot is simple and very Hitchcockian, Paul Conroy (Ryan Reynolds) wakes up to find himself bound and in a coffin buried under the ground. As the film unfolds you learn that he is a truck driver under contract in Iraq. His convoy was hit and he is being held for ransom. As time and air runs out he desperately spends his time on the cell phone left by his captors trying to find a way out of the box.
