Enough of you were disappointed we had to bump this film in June. It's gotten ridiculously good reviews, and well, we have a hole to fill, so now is your chance to see in the theatre.
Ivan Locke (Hardy(the new Mad Max)) leaves work and turns right instead of left, and his life may or may not fall apart as a result. That's it. That's the movie. It seems simple, but through a series of phone calls, we learn more about Locke's life, about the wife and son waiting for him at home, about his coworkers who are upset that he's just potentially blown the biggest deal of their lives, and the reason he's driving to London and risking everything he's built for himself.
The movie is told in real-ish time during the drive to London. Like All Is Lost, the film focuses on one man, but instead of watching Robert Redford's boat sink, we have Locke cruising on his own, desperately trying to keep his life afloat. Focused almost entirely on Hardy's face, Locke is as riveting as any big-budget explosion.
Locke is earning praise from critics that is frightening in its zeal - everyone seems to love it. Taut and suspenseful, you might decide to take a different way home one day. Or not.
