PHONE BOOTH (Theatrical Release USA 2003)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Phone Booth—
odd and improbable—uses the technique of shooting the film in one location, a phone booth, which forces the audience to focus on dialogue. Oddly enough, the movie comes across as intense and highly suspenseful due to the writing and dialogue. Some sexual references take it out of the teen range and places it within the adult range of entertainment. Worth watching.

? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The film does not follow the classic Alfred Hitchcock suspense invoking format, but still manages to drive the suspense emotion quite well.
