  • Written by: Chris Sparling
  • Cast: Ryan Reynolds

Not one for claustrophobes, Cortés's debut feature stars Reynolds as a contractor trapped in a coffin and buried alive by Iraqis, who must raise a $5 million in a ransom before the battery on his mobile dies, or be left to perish. Those pesky Iraqis. Clever and creatively-shot single location filmmaking criticising the privatisation of war.
