Ivan Locke gets into a car at a remote location and begins driving toward London, a 90-minute drive from where he starts. The entire film unfolds in his car as he places and answers dozens of calls over those 90 minutes. He is a man of incredible integrity and, as a result, he blows up his entire life during that drive. He is someone who is accustomed to being in charge and controlling everything that happens around him. He assumes that he can continue doing so, and it is fascinating to watch him try, while it becomes increasingly evident that he cannot do so in the face of these events. It's a harrowing, roller coaster ride for the viewer. The end of the film leaves the story unfinished and that felt exactly right. We left the theater feeling stunned and as if we ourselves had driven that car for 90 minutes down that highway. This generated the most conversation we have had about a film in a long time. FIVE STARS.
