review by
Mike Haberfelner

It wasn't Don's (Mason Rey) day (or week or month) to begin with: He's a tele-marketer and really hates his job, he's single and hates it, and he's not sure about that whole online dating thing - and then when driving through a tunnle, it just collapses onto his car, entombing him - but miraculously leaving him unscathed, as the car caught all the blow - though is ever so slowly giving in to the weight of the rocks upon it.

Now Don is living through all the motions, from fear to hope to desparation to even a certain kind of indifference. And as it becomes more and more clear that rescue won't be there any time soon, he starts to try to entertain himself in more and more bizarre ways - until he makes contact with someone he hopes to be the rescue team ... but it's just another driver entombed just like him, Gym (Joel P.E. King), captured between the rocks just  few feet away, but unable to reach and meet in person - but at least within earshot. With nobody else to talk to, Don soon befriends Gym - sure, at first he's very irritated by Gym's laid back behaviour concerning their predicament, but that eventually calms Don as well, and he starts opening up to Gym about all the things that went wrong in his life - including some he hasn't been aware of himself up to now. It's only when he finds out that Gym is more likely than not only a figment of his imagination that Don freaks out - but that's when everything might already end due to another cave-in ...


Lamp Light is a mighty interesting film for sure, as it braves the almost unsurmountable challenge to make something interesting out of something that's amost entirely shot in one (very claustrophobic) location with just one on-screen actor who's more than likely going gradually insane. And somehow, the film comes out on top, thanks to an accomplished and very compelling performance by Mason Rey, to very unusual camerawork that gets the most out of its limited and limiting locations by using unusual angles, lenses and the like, but first and foremost thanks to a screenplay that's not only well-structured (and a story like this needs an especially strong structure) but also draws a multi-layered central character with a solid character ark and plenty of intriguing facets. And all of this just makes this a really good watch.
