Midweek Mention... Phone Booth
Manage episode 347822073 series 2645791
We've been stanning for Colin Farrell for some time now and following his portrayal of quiet and modest heroism in THIRTEEN LIVES. I thought we should take a look at his back catalogue to work out whether there were early signs of his promise. It turns out there were. PHONE BOOTH (2002) is Joel Schumacher's expertly-paced, gimmicky thriller set in real time and virtually a single-location which sees Farrell captivating as the sleazy and obnoxious New York yuppie who finds himself engaged in a cat and mouse game with Kiefer Sutherland's psychotic sniper. Tense and claustrophobic and showcasing a number of amusing early noughties trends, from the fashions and styles to the editing and themes, this is well worth a rewatch.
We love to hear from our listeners! By which I mean we tolerate it. If it hasn't been completely destroyed yet you can usually find us on twitter @dads_film, on Facebook Bad Dads Film Review, on email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on our website baddadsfilm.com.
