There is a category of films that “make” a single actor. And he plays so that the eyes do not tear. Sometimes it is a movie cuts in our memory for a long time – much stronger than the tape with budgets of millions and crowds of stars.
Recently in the Russian rolling out a wonderful film “collector”, where in the frame only Habensky Constantine. And on this occasion we decided to think of other good movies one (or almost the same) actor.
Psychological drama about human suffering, accustomed to torment others, more than convincingly played Konstantin Habensky. Other characters are there only as a voice on the phone, and all the stressful and emotional film rests on the excellent play of one actor.
Shoal / The Shallows
Triumph of the will of man in the face of the forces of nature, fate, destiny – the plot can be taken in different ways. The most important thing – a movie about how the injured surfer on the tiny island precipitates shark catches. Because somewhere deep down we are all afraid to be face to face with the inexorable dangers to overcome that over our forces.
Nerves on edge / High Strung
Do not carp – yes, there is still the actors in the scenes and at the end of Jim Carrey appears briefly. But the whole film rests not on it, and Steve Oedekerk. This amazing one-man show. His character is actually the whole day doing nothing else, only grunts, grumbles and shakes all the nerves. But what makes it so funny and brilliantly, the film is definitely worth seeing, and perhaps more than once.
Duel / Duel
The first feature film by Steven Spielberg, which immediately found and critics, and the audience that in front of them a brilliant director. The film, shot in only 13 days, remains in a sense unmatched performance. Pretty simple story about the driver, which was being chased by a madman hell-truck turns into a parable of faceless evil with which can face any. But the word “parable” should not mislead you – it’s a real thriller, where the voltage captures from the first minute. (And then these giants on the road – they are really afraid of?)

Despite the fact that in one frame Hardy, here plenty of plot threads that are woven into a tight knot.
Anatomy of Gray / Gray’s Anatomy
Unusual and fun experiment famous director Steven Soderbergh – and he is a famous lover of the search for new forms.

And just in time, when it is no longer concerned with physical survival, it turns out that he is very well aware of their captors.

The man who sleeps / Un homme qui dort
French film explores the loneliness of man who does not want and does not feel anything personal.

2112 Luna / Moon
Sam Rockwell in the role of himself and once again yourself so good that on this tape necessarily remember every time when it comes to films of the actor. So we could not say about it.
