True originality is something that a mainstream cinema audience is all too rarely exposed to, unsurprising really considering the vast array of ideas committed to celluloid at one point or another. It is then with a sense of both intrigue and trepidation that viewers will approach Rodrigo Cortés’ ‘Buried’, a thriller boasting only one on-screen character who has been literally buried alive inside a coffin underground – and stays within said coffin for the entirety of the running time. On face value it is an idea that is so unbelievably simple yet one fraught with countless potential pitfalls that it really shouldn’t work. Yet somehow, through a careful balance of ingenuity, constraint and excellent casting; Cortés pretty much nails it (pun very much intended).
