Twitter Capsule: Confined-camera gambit dulled a bit by antic edits. Flaunts its conceit at some cost to emotional impact. Fine, but limited.

VOR:   However arguably it narrows the movie's scope or impact, the confining of the whole drama within one car is hard to gainsay as a high-risk maneuver. Interesting riff on the focused character study.
