Buried Movie Premiere Interviews Rodrigo Cortés
Indie Genius Best Horror Movies Ever
Best horror movies ever has really been impressed with the rise of Ryan Reynolds and Buried, we wanted to learn more about the man behind it Rodrigo Cortes. He’s been the man behind the scenes, and best horror movies ever wanted to give him some attention.
When director Rodrigo Cortés first heard the premise for Buried, his reaction was pretty typical, but I think many of you might be surprised since Buried seems to be a sequel of sorts for his gripping film The Vanishing. Best horror movies ever found out this was not the case.
“I asked `What is it about?’ and they said, `It’s about a guy in a box for an hour and a half,”’ the Spanish filmmaker told us. “It sounded foolish and totally nonsensical, so of course I was interested. I was pretty sure it was not going to be possible to pull off the whole story, but, to my surprise, I read the script [by Chris Sparling] and realized it was a perfect machine. Suddenly I felt like an excited teenager, because I saw the possibility of doing something that had literally never been done before — something impossible.”
“You cannot push the idea further than Buried, because all you have is a single actor inside a box,” Cortés says. “At the beginning, everyone told me `Oh, you’re making an experimental film, something for museums.’ But I said `No.’ I wanted this to be a big film. I didn’t even want it to be Lifeboat inside a box. I wanted North By Northwest inside a box.”
Cortés, who has directed several shorts and one feature film (2007′s The Contestant), was firm about one rule he’s lived by for his films and for Buried this was of utmost importance.
“I decided it was critical that we never leave the box,” he says. “That was not arbitrary. It seemed logical to me, because I wanted the viewer to be in Paul’s shoes for the entire time and experience exactly what he experienced, to know only what he knows and nothing more. I wanted the film to be a physical experience, where you could feel the blood and sweat. I wanted people to leave the theater four pounds lighter.
That’s the kind of thing best horror movies ever loves to hear from directors who take all their films seriously, no matter what the subject matter. This is one of the reasons why we’ve pushed Buried so much. It’s such a great film that makes you feel like you are in the box the entire time. Only a great filmmaker can evoke that reaction from the audience. Best horror movies ever is curious as to the very slow rollout this film has had. This weekend alone, it’s only on 30 screens and now the studio is telling us that the actual release date is next weekend. I only hope they don’t screw this up and make it so most people will think it’s
