Favorite One-Location Movies?

These kinds of movies seem to have a great ratio for me. The first one that comes to mind, and the earliest is "12 Angry Men", as well as: "Le Trou" - a great prison movie. "Rope" is a good one that is in real-time (not as good as the aforementioned though)

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

Thank you!

"My Dinner With Andre" is definitely another favorite, and probably my favorite. 10/10 - can't believe I forgot about it, but I'm a bit hungover and tired :)

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

Yes. I have that one.
I hadn't really thought of it because there are a few scenes with them in the car with the coworker, and in Bunny's apartment, but for the most part, it takes place in the office… Same with Barefoot in the Park. For the most part, it all takes place in the apartment, even though the movie gave us a few moments in the Plaza Hotel, the park, the Staton Island ferry, a Greek restaurant…

Many of these, if not all, were adaptations of plays.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

I liked it!

On IMDB, on the old boards, they did a chat session with the directors/producers of Circle. It was fun, they were nice, engaging guys. I complimented one of the actors and I got some great backstory on him from them, and they said that they would pass on the compliment, which was great.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

Define a little what you mean because things like Jaws fall under single location technically even though I wouldn't classify it as that because it's different locations in the same town.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

I know you're not as keen on modern movies, but maybe 127 Hours would qualify.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

Specify what "one location" entails. Do you mean, like 12 Angry Men, where it literally takes place in one location - never leaving the room? Or are they allowed to leave the room in which the scene is, provided they are in the same general location?

Friday the 13th takes place in one general location - a camp - but there are many cuts to other parts of the camp. Also, they are at times in a cabin and outside of it, which changes from an interior scene to exterior.

Someone mentioned the Breakfast Club, but in Breakfast Club they go outside of the school at the end.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

Breakfast Club is fine.. It's mostly in one location; I would never fret over a tiny detail. Good example.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

I saw it, but it wasn't a favorite.. 7/10

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

Seven Waves Away (1957) is similar and LOOSELY (and I do mean LOOSELY) based on a real-life incident. But has been DRASTICALLY changed.

"THAT'S SOME BAD SHIT, HARRY!". wink.gif

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

I was just going to mention that one. Love it!

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

"Favorite One-Location Movies?"

———————————


Would the Movies "John Carpenter's THE THING" and the 2011 Prequel both qualify ?

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

I will give you the blessing and say, "Yes."

If Mort comes in and says, "No," it does not count because he is an arrogant douche bag filled with cement at the bottom of an ocean with slimy sea snails crawling all over him.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

One location as in one setting, or that literally most of the movie was shot in one set piece? If it is the former then many horror movies and sci-fi movies could qualify. The Shining, Enemy Mine, The Thing, to name a few.

Re: Favorite One-Location Movies?

I'm never picky on these details.. Something like "The Shining" qualifies in my book.
