BEST - 6. 'Locke'
Yes, folks, this is the movie about a Brit in a BMW yammering on his car phone for 90 minutes. But since Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises, Warrior) plays construction foreman Ivan Locke with such coruscating brilliance, you won't be bored for a second. Writer-director Stephen Knight focuses on Hardy's face and voice as Locke tries to keep his career, his marriage and his future from hitting a wall. It shouldn't work at all, and yet it does, beautifully.
