#2. Locke

This movie, directed by Steven Knight, is to say the very least, unique. It is an entire 90-minute move in one place, a car. Only one actor is ever on screen as well. Tom Hardy plays the main character who sits in his car for the entire film. Sounds pretty boring right? Well according to the pros online, the series of phone calls that take place in the car allows the storyline to move forward and really take hold of its audience. People love the odd setup and the way the movie takes you in and surprises you. They do say that you must be patient but that you will definitely be happy that you watched it.
