The film follows the journey of Locke towards London from an unspecified location some 90 minutes north of London. However, the construction site at the beginning of the film, and hence at the start of the journey, is actually the Broadgate Circle development in the City of London, also known as 5 Broadgate. This is evidenced by the fact that Liverpool Street station is clearly visible in the background of the wide shot, along with several lesser-known but easily identifiable buildings such as 100 Liverpool Street. Locke's car is initially parked just north of the site, at the corner of Appold Street and Sun Street in London. See more »

I can only say we have to appreciate such work of arts since in the modern era of over-exploitation money took over all the popularity of the cinema. It is very obvious that the movie depends on a very limited budget, which I like the most when it comes to cinema, because it is not just for entertainment, or it is not all about marketing and sales. Apart from the story, the movie conveys a message that stimulating people's minds and imaginations does not necessarily require cutting- edge visual effects or a science-fiction rooted story. There are many ways to do that, and when you see the movie I assure you you will ask yourself "How on earth did they manage to craft such an extraordinary movie with such a straightforward story?".This movie has a pure and creative story flow which keeps you follow with all the focus. It makes you imagine, stimulates your curiosity and plays with your nerves. Better watch it yourself!
