Earlier this year we got the ultra-minimalist “Ryan Reynolds in a box” thriller Buried that by most accounts made the most of its extremely, almost absurdly limited setting. Now we have the slightly more expanded “Adrien Brody in a crashed car” thriller Wrecked. Somebody needs to get on a script for a “Scarlett Johansson in a sauna” movie ASAP. The timing has never been better.
