Netflix Gems: Buried

Posted by Miguel Grinberg under Movie Reviews.


Paul Conroy is a civilian contractor working in Iraq. After being attacked and kidnapped, he finds himself buried alive in a coffin somewhere in the desert. His captor left a bunch of items with him, among them a cell phone. He calls him and requests $5 million to let him go. Paul now needs to arrange his own rescue by making phone calls before he runs out of air.

With this simple premise, director Rodrigo Cort├ęs created an intelligent and claustrophobic thriller set entirely inside the wooden coffin.

Buried is currently streaming on Netflix. Watch it now, before it disappears!
