What are critics saying?


Village Voice by

Rodrigo Cortes keeps the action bound to the box, limiting his lighting to naturalistic approximations, so that much of Reynolds's performance consists of him grunting and heaving in the dark.


Chicago Reader by Andrea Gronvall

As a cautionary tale about the perils of nation building, this is both creepy and provocative, but director Rodrigo Cortés blows it in the last few minutes with a rushed ending that feels like a cheat after all the escalating tension.


The A.V. Club by Noel Murray

Buried is as much about dropped calls, getting sent to voicemail, and being openly lied to by our institutions as it about being buried alive by terrorists.


Observer by Rex Reed

The effect is genuinely creepy, but do not even think of seeing Buried if you suffer from claustrophobia.


Variety by Rob Nelson

In purely cinematic terms, Buried, set in late 2006, is an ingenious exercise in sustained tension that would make Alfred Hitchcock turn over in his grave.
