Review

perched uneasily among the melodrama of 70s catastrophe movies such as the airport collection and the extra sober horrors of paul greengrass’s September 11 drama united 93, this lean hijack thriller marks a striking characteristic debut for german creator/director patrick vollrath. having earned an oscar nomination for his 2015 short film alles wird intestine (the whole lot could be okay), vollrath demonstrates a slick technical potential tinged with a mainstream arthouse sensibility (he studied beneath michael haneke) that may nicely land him greater astounding commissions within the destiny.

joseph gordon-levitt is tobias, an american co-pilot flying a business airliner from berlin to paris. onboard the plane, together with a full load of passengers, are flight attendant gökce (aylin tezel), with whom tobias has a young toddler, and a collection of hijackers, first discovered on thrummingly silent airport surveillance cameras, making their way via security. when the hijackers storm the cockpit rapidly after takeoff, the captain (pilot became actor carlo kitzlinger) is critically injured and tobias unearths himself locked within the manage booth – with gökce on the alternative facet of the door and the attackers threatening to kill passengers unless he lets them in.

co-written by using the bosnian-born austrian screenwriter senad halilbasic, and taking its title from the air site visitors manipulate code for a hijacking, 7500 plays out nearly completely within the cockpit of an airbus a320, in something drawing close real time. like steven knight’s locke or rodrigo cortés’s buried, vollrath completely explores the opportunities of this single place, trapping the target audience in a restrained area from which the broader drama performs out. cinematographer sebastian thaler makes effective use of hand-held cameras, manoeuvring dexterously around the semi-improvised movement, combining an air of claustrophobia with a sinewy widescreen sensibility that in some way makes the maximum of those cramped situations.

there’s no score both, apart from a sparse quit-credits piano piece, leaving supervising sound editor daniel iribarren to conjure a musique concrète symphony from the ambient noises of the aircraft and the remote clamour of the attack. when the hijack takes place, the chaos within the cabin is heard within the cockpit as muffled scuffles and stifled screams, visible best on a closed-circuit tv display, and made all the more alarming by the muting of the bolstered cabin door upon which the attackers relentlessly pound.

even though 7500 starts in procedural mode, it regularly mutates right into a mental two-hander between tobias and vedat, the youngest of the hijackers, sympathetically played by way of omid memar. having truely been coerced through his elders into an action he neither knows nor fully supports, this teen offers a chink in their otherwise zealous armour. for vollrath, this genuinely represents an try to ward off the jihadist cliches which have long been a lazy movie staple (keep in mind james cameron’s casually islamophobic genuine lies?), finding unexpected common ground among opposing gamers when they're subsequently brought face to face, itself something of a film cliche. a good deal is made of gökce’s turkish heritage, but extra diffused (and indeed extra affecting) is the way tobias recites the rules of the in-flight guidance guide with the air of a spiritual mantra, a calming ritual during a second of crisis.

“a watch for a watch leaves the whole international blind” runs the outlet quotation, attributed to gandhi, and genuinely positioned there to make sure that the most informal viewer is aware vollrath’s intentions, whilst they turn out to be immersed inside the often nail-biting movement. whether or now not you purchase into it is a depend for debate, however you’d be difficult pressed to read the film’s final war of words as triumphant, whatever your political predilections.
