Main character Stu (Colin Farrell at his best performance) is one of this fake New Yorkers: some publicist, dressed in a fake coat of bogus fame and unexciting BIG contacts. He stops by at the phone booth to make his regular call to another women, the one which doesn't know that he is married... As soon as he hangs up? A phone call... A phone call for him... A phone call by a sniper. He has to play by the sniper's rules, or someone will die.
A thriller? An action? A psychological drama? I would say all of it at the same time... but much more. Did I want to know what will happen next? Yes! Did this film make me think? Yes!
From my point of view, this film mostly about art of listening. We often prejudge situations and people. But we forget to listen, to understand and hear the meaning of simple clues which might save our own life. And Forest Whitaker as Captain Ramey did this part very well.
On the other hand it gives us a slight idea how one second can change our life forever. And it does every single day.
The ending made me disappointed but I can't give this film less than A- grade. I've seen better, but not as many as you might think.

Phone Booth is the story of a man, Stu Shepard, who's a tricky PR guy and a cheating husband. When he stops in a Manhattan phone booth to call his second love (girl he's cheating with), he gets a call from an odd man. He then realizes, thanks to a red dot, that he's being pinned in the booth my a sniper. After a little inconvenice with hookers and their manager, the cops are all around, while Stu is stuck on the phone with a maniac.
Phone Booth was a great film and finely crafted. Rent this movie. I dont really think the DVD is worth the money (only a commentary). This was one tense film. Enjoy
