Storyline

In the middle of the Mojave desert rests an abandoned phone booth, riddled with bullet holes, graffiti, its windows broken, but otherwise functioning. Its identity was born on the Internet and for years, travelers would make the trek down a lonely dirt road and camp next to the booth, in the hopes that it might suddenly ring, and they could connect with a stranger (often from another country) on the other end of the line. This is the story of four disparate people whose lives intersect with this mystical outpost, and the comfort they seek from a stranger's voice: There is Beth, a troubled woman facing dilemmas with her love-life and a recurring, baffling crime; Mary, a young South African, who is contemplating selling her body for the funds to escape her dreadful existence; Alex, a woman who is losing her lover, Glory, to the belief she is plagued by aliens, and Richard, driven into desperation by a separation from his wife, who happens upon the booth after his failed suicide attempt....

Trivia

In the 1970s and before, all phone booths would take incoming calls. So people could wait for a call, or call back. Sometime in the 1980s, the phone company stopped this service, saying it helped drug dealers. See more »

i wish i could swear that ALL the above comments have some connection to the making of this film...
20 November 2008 | by imizrahi2002See all my reviews

but i can't... but i CAN give you a reflection on my experience of this film... it wasn't terrible. and, when deciding what to see, that should never be part of my criteria...there's LOTS of stuff out there. this was fairly amateurish writing bolstered by a few strong performances... and, even though it had a clever idea to springboard from, AND as 'original'(and this is definitely part of why i'm convinced people who helped make this movie are just trying to get 'free hype' on this site, which makes this i sore) as some other commentors said it was, it was, to be kind, not all that clever... for me, though, when it was over, it became an exercise in, 'ok, genius...what would make this movie BETTER...'. i mean, after all, it's EASY to pick something apart...much harder to put it together... i don't want to spoil it for anyone who'd still care to see this... EYE was intrigued, obviously... but it'll be obvious at the end of the movie who i'm speaking about when i say that they should have developed one of the central characters more...i never found out enough about THIS central figure... and that might've made it just cohesive enough so that i wouldn't've felt compelled to write this caveat...
