Anticipation: 3/5 A guy has life-altering phone conversations while driving between two cities… Hmmmm…
Final Verdict: 4.5/5 My girlfriend hated it, but what does she know…? Great film! I loved the metaphorical implications embedded in Locke!
Locke is film about owning up to one’s mistakes and taking responsibility for the outcomes. The entire film is shot from inside a car and never does it feel claustrophobic. Steven Knight‘s direction is perfect and Tom Hardy again demonstrates just how versatile he can be. The film seems rather straightforward at first, but the themes and metaphors soon engulf the film and take it to places that beg for multiple viewings. 2013’s sleeper hit and an absolute must-see!
