Absurdly set in some pre-cell-phone universe, ]]>Phone Booth]]> is best appreciated as hilarious pulp metaphor, which, not coincidentally, happens to be one of the screenwriter’s specialties. Could Camus or Sartre have imagined a scenario in which the antihero is acting – under threat of death – according to the enigmatic instructions of a voice that only he can hear even while a convenient display window filled with television sets broadcasts his plight to the world? Still, it’s a pity that Larry Cohen, whose topical tabloid worldview makes him one of America’s last abstract sensationalists, didn’t direct his own script. (Jim Hoberman)

]]>Phone Booth]]> will be screened together with The Telephone Book.
