The picture, from writer-director Steven Knight, is as simple as it gets. Tom Hardy plays Ivan Locke, a man driving through England and grappling with a crisis without ever leaving his car. Hardy is the show here, brilliantly externalizing Locke's internal crisis. But there simply isn't enough here from a dramatic standpoint to sustain a feature.
