Many movies are the sum of their characters. But what if you only have the one? And what if you go even further, like Tom Hardy in Steven Knight’s new film Locke, and confine them to a single space? Aspects such as plot and motivation lose their conventional bearings; it’s very much up to the sole on-screen character, whether it be Hardy in Locke, Ryan Reynolds in Buried, or James Franco in 127 Hours - they all bear the burden of keeping the audience entertained, giving kinesis to their static predicaments. But there’s one factor that’s nearly always neglected with not just these movies, but the vast majority: there are always two characters on screen. The actor, and the landscape.
