    Review: Existential Thriller 'Locke,' Starring Tom Hardy and His Fabulous Voice

    If you’re going to make a film about a guy taking calls from his car -- and if half of those calls are about concrete -- then you sure as hell better cast a lead actor with command of the screen. This apparently wasn’t lost on writer-director Steven Knight, who wisely got Tom Hardy to take the wheel...

For one, you need a hell of an actor (or actors) to hold the attention for even the briefest of running times. You also need a story that coherently keeps the actors in place, with enough of a hook to keep you in...
