Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 04/11/2003
"...Schumacher keeps his camera in a state of high agitation, bumping and swirling around the spectacle of Farrell's motor-mouth frenzy..."
Rolling Stone - 04/17/2003
"...Director Joel Schumacher, with the help of the gifted cinematographer Matthew Libatique makes a tight, tense job of it....Farrell is a dynamo..."
Total Film - 05/01/2003
"...[Farrell] makes lowlife media pimp Stu Shepard his own....A high velocity thriller..."
Chicago Sun-Times - 04/04/2003
"...[Farrell] shows energy and intensity…"
Wall Street Journal - 04/24/2014
"[A] genuinely thrilling little thriller....Mr. Farrell, in a dazzling performance, makes Stu's pipsqueakery just as interesting as his vulnerability."

Product Description:

Joel Schumacher (8 MM, FALLING DOWN) directs this suspense drama set in New York City's Times Square. A wannabe hotshot entertainment publicist who's more intent on posturing for his unpaid assistant than he is in actually working, Stu Shepherd (Colin Farrell) ducks into a phone booth to make his regular afternoon call to his girlfriend (Katie Holmes). Stu stops in the same phone booth at the same time every day to flirt with the young girl, who does not know that Stu is happily married with no intention of dating her seriously. When Stu says goodbye to his girl and sets down the receiver, he picks up a call from a threateningly sarcastic man with a deep voice. This man seems to have been tracking Stu's visits to this booth every day, and suddenly Stu knows that his secrets are no longer his own. Soon, the caller identifies himself as a sniper and begins shooting. Police are called in, and Stu must use his PR skills in a final test to get out of the booth, alive. This compelling drama, expertly crafted for maximum tension, will keep audiences nervously awaiting its outcome, unable to look away from the screen for even a moment.
