A phone rings, do you answer it?

6 years, 5 months ago at Apr 1 19:49
Very few films focus and remain in just one location, but those that do have to grab your interest and keep you engrossed for over an hour, this demands a great script and lots of tension/drama. On paper Phone Booth isn’t going to succeed as one of those films, for a start it focuses on Stu Shepard (Colin Farrell), an arrogant and selfish publicist, who is contemplating cheating on his wife –n... read more

A haunting slogan from the golden days of radio, spoken by the disembodied voice on ''The Shadow,'' was the boast: ''Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? The Shadow knows,'' followed by an insinuating cackle. In ''Phone Booth,'' Joel Schumacher's flashy stunt of a movie, a contemporary descendant of that phantom voice unleashes a similarly nasty, all-knowing snicker every few minutes du... read more

A very good believable little thriller, cast really do stand out. Setting and writing was perfect, not perfect though, but exciting an it i keep you on the edge of your seat.

Stu Shepard is a fast talking and wise cracking New York City publicist who gets out of trouble and lies with his clever charm, connections, and charisma. Upon answering a call in a phone booth in belief it is Pam, Stu is on the line with a dangerous yet intelligent psychopath with a sniper rifle.

"11.8. Essential rewatchilla Phone Booth pääsi vähän yllättämään. En nimittäin muistanut sen olevan visuaalisesti näin oksettavan ruma kasa siniharmaata mössöä. Tapahtumien sijoittaminen yhteen puhelinkoppiin on ihan mielenkiintoinen idea, mutta lopulta kuvauksen pitäisi olla paljon klaustrofobisempaa, jotta siitäkään saataisiin mitään irti. Muutenkin leffa tuntui lähinnä siltä, että miljonäärit kritisoivat rikkaiden ihmisten ajattelemattomuutta ja tienaavat samalla muut"

"Phone Booth / Por um Fio Direção: Joel Schumacher Roteiro: Larry Cohen Ano: 2002 Sinopse: Stu é um jovem e promissor agente que mora em Nova York. É exatamente em volta de um orelhão dessa cidade que se passa este suspense dramático, quando o publicitário atende um telefone público que está tocando. Só que quem está do outro lado passa a fazer ameaças de morte ao agente que, se desligar o aparelho, morrerá. A mira de raio laser, provavelmente vinda de uma arma apontada para ele, co"

A good movie

“It has been a while since I have seen this flick and I should definitely re-watch it at some point. First of all, I’m well aware of the fact that, ever since the ‘Batman & Robin’ debacle, Joel Schumacher has always had a rather lousy reputation but, somehow, I always had a weak spot for his work. I mean, sure, except for the criminally underrated ‘Tigerland’, he hasn't done anything really brilliant but most of his movies are actually quite entertaining and this flick is a fine example. Indeed, 2 years after ‘Tigerland’, Joel Schumacher decided to work again with Colin Farrell and he gave us once again one of his best features. I mean, sure, the whole concept was really far-fetched and terribly limited but that was also its appeal and they managed to get most of this concept” read more

“A haunting slogan from the golden days of radio, spoken by the disembodied voice on ''The Shadow,'' was the boast: ''Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men?

In ''Phone Booth,'' Joel Schumacher's flashy stunt of a movie, a contemporary descendant of that phantom voice unleashes a similarly nasty, all-knowing snicker every few minutes during the protracted phone conversation that consumes most of this clanking, overheated thriller.

The target of derision, Stu Shepard (Colin Farrell), is a scruffy young New York publicist who resembles an up-to-date version of Sidney Falco from ''Sweet Smell of Success.'' Stu's grubby little world is shaken one afternoon when he picks up the ringing telephone in the Midtown Manhattan pho” read more

300 From The First Decade Of The New Millennium (300 movies items)

"Colin Farrell plays Stu Shepard, a smooth-talking, self-serving, fast-track publicist who, in the dominating age of the cell phone, ends up getting stuck in a phone booth (which is lucky for this movie, since that's the title of this flick). Not because the booth door is jammed, but because there's a sniper with the scope's red dot resting firmly right between his eyes. communicating thru the land-line, the assassin begins a barrage of questioning targeted straight at immorality of Stu'S heart.

" This suspense thriller about a sniper holding a man hostage in a phone booth was originally set to be released in November 2002 but had to be pushed back several months due to the Beltway sniper attacks. Ten people were killed over the course of 3 weeks and 15 sniper attacks."

Movie Diary 2012 (551 movies items)

"14.5. Kiefer Sutherland jekuttaa Colin Farrellin muuttumaan paremmaksi ihmiseksi. Yksinkertainen asetelma pysyy kumman kiinnostavana, vaikka kuvaruutua jaetaan rumasti ja tietyt juonenkäänteet tuntuvat hieman typeriltä. Farrellin henkilöohjaukseen on selvästi panostettu ja hyvä niin, koska hänessä on todistetusti ilmiselvää ja aivan liian usein hukattua potentiaalia."
