Movie Diary 6/24/2020

7500 (Patrick Vollrath, 2019). Skyjacking, seen entirely from the inside of the cockpit, where the co-pilot (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) is forced to deal with the spiraling situation. It’s an exercise in limited-perspective suspense, and well-executed even if there are a few “Why didn’t he just do …” moments. A really interesting use of the video monitor that shows the outside of the impregnable cockpit, a monochrome screen that has a Rear Window-like effect. The director, a German, makes his feature debut here; a previous short was Oscar-nominated.
