Knight’s ride a hum­bling af­fair


Kapi-Mana News - - MOVIES -

The ef­fect is to give the im­pres­sion of see­ing more than you do.

The peo­ple and places on the other end of Locke’s phone are brought to vivid life by the in­ten­sity and in­ci­den­tal hu­mour of the di­a­logue, and the in­ti­macy and iso­la­tion of a des­per­ate night-time drive.

At the risk of get­ting hy­per­bolic, it’s all kind of hum­bling – Knight can do more with a guy in a car on the phone than many direc­tors can do with a cast of thou­sands.

I don’t know how Knight sold the idea of Locke to Movie Mogul. But what­ever the case, they clearly un­der­stood that much.

Man on a mis­sion: Tom Hardy plays Locke in the film of the same name, about an or­di­nary man deal­ing with the most ex­tra­or­di­nary night of his life.
