"Phone Booth" is a extremely fine example of Schumacher's creative film-making. This movie has been heavily criticized, but on the same level, heavily misconceived. The film focuses on Colin Farell plays Stu Shepard, a false big-shot publicist who is also cheating on his wife. One day, Stu recieves a phone call from a sniper who forces him to admit his wrongdoings, and if Stu doesn't cooperate, the sniper will shoot him. This movie is based on loose morals, about how it's hard to come clean with honesty when you know you've done something wrong, regardless of how selfish your character may be. The sniper's main goal is to help Stu get through his sins by threatening him with death, as he knows Stu's selfish attitude would not cooraperate with much less severe circumstances. The only thing to watch out with in this movie is the language, as almost every cuss word is used throughout the entire length of the film. This is mostly applied by Farrell's character, but remember, his character is a selfish, city man, so I believe the language isn't really such a big deal due to the fact that it allows Farrell to portray his character properly.
