127 HOURS (Danny Boyle, 2010) – FILM REVIEW

A celebration of the human capacity for survival and resistance, 127 Hours is based on the true story of a man whose arm remained trapped under a boulder during an excursion trip to a canyon in Utah. Danny Boyle expands on this seemingly restrictive narrative in surprising and exciting ways. Think The Twilight Zone with richer visuals and a touch of psychedelia. The film also remains gripping thanks to James Franco’s commanding presence, which is remarkable, given the restricted movements that his part required. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
