2017 Movies You would never Notice had only one Location

A great deal of 2017 movies got our attention for their brilliant and awe inspiring location including the eminent acting some of our most loved performing artists conveyed to them.

Truly, the location in which a movie is set can go a long way in determining how much viewers will enjoy the movie and the performance of the movie at the Box office. Some movies however have not more than one location or a few added extras in them and yet captivated viewers. The truth is movie producers and directors are forced to up their game when they have no more than a location to shoot their movie.

Following this logic means that movie directors have to downsize their cast, props and equipment to no more than a single room or location. This has made some directors thrive more since they have to bring up their best ideas despite the constraints.

Here are 3 Movies that were shot in just one location.


The Sunset Limited is a 2011 television film based on the original play written by Cormac McCarthy. The film stars Tommy Lee Jones and Samuel L. Jackson as white and black respectively; two men conversing about White’s attempted suicide by leaping into the path of an oncoming train.

White feels as though everything ends up in death, and that his life is minuscule in the throes of time. Black feels that he can persuade White from committing suicide.

With Black stopping White right before he was about to kill himself, Black feels that this is destiny. In the end, Black is not able to persuade White from suicide and lets him leave the apartment.

The movie is filled with a lot of philosophical musings and basically occurs at Black’s place with the two men talking around a dinner table in the center of Black’s apartment. The movie is gripping despite it been limited to no more than a location.


War Book is a 2014 British political drama film directed by Tom Harper and written by Jack Thorne. The film features an ensemble cast, consisting of Adeel Akhtar, Nicholas Burns, Ben Chaplin, Shaun Evans, Kerry Fox, Phoebe Fox and Sophie Okonedo.

The movie is set inside a governmental meeting room in London where top eight British civil servants take on the roles of government officials in a war game.

The essence of the game is to determine how ministers and officials should relate and behave if there was ever a nuclear attack.

At the end of the movie. The major players determine that there’s no need for Britain to retaliate against its aggressors with another nuclear attack but that they could explore other means to get retribution.

The only noticeable location is the war room asides from the occasional government buildings and courtyard views. The concept must have created a tough call for the director but nonetheless made for a good movie.

Buried is a 2010 English-language Spanish thriller film directed by Rodrigo Cortés, starring Ryan Reynolds as an Iraq-based American civilian truck driver Paul Conroy who, after being attacked, finds himself buried alive in a wooden coffin, with only a lighter, flask, flashlight, knife, glowsticks, pen, pencil, and a mobile phone.

The movie uses a claustrophobic single location and puts viewers directly into the world Ryan Reynolds character experiences as he ponders about life and death buried in a coffin somewhere in the Iraqi desert.

For close to 2 hours, Ryan Reynolds character must learn to adjust, make use of the cellphone and lighter buried with him, while also trying the best he can to be quick enough to escape before running out of oxygen.

The director works on the sensibilities of viewers as a snake is introduced into the coffin which in all produces a nerve-wracking movie shot in a single location.

CDQ Explains Shocking details - "My Father Gave Me A Condom at age 16"

Nigerian born rapper CDQ who is now a landlord in Lekki lagos state recently explains some shoking details about his  childhood and relationship with his Father

The Popular indigenous rap artiste, CDQ, would never forget the year 2008 as it was the time he lost his father. Taking a trip down memory lane with Saturday Beats, the singer referred to his father as his best friend and confidant.

“I was very close to my father who died in 2008. I learnt that he was in his office when he suddenly slumped and he was rushed to the hospital. He was in the hospital for some time before he finally died. His death really affected the family financially. Also, my father was our guide and he advised us on every life situation.
“When I was 16, my father called me and said that he knew that at my age, I would be seeing girls. He gave me a condom and told me that if I must have s*x, I should ensure I wear one. He made it known that he was against pre-marital sex but I should always protect myself if I must engage in the act.
He also always advised that as a man, I should always ensure that I worked hard and earn money because by doing so, the ladies would chase me. I have really missed that intimacy and friendship I had with my dad.
Also, there was the financial aspect. My father was the one that took care of his extended family. My father taught me not to depend on anybody,” the Sai Baba singer said.
The banker-turned-singer told Saturday Beats that when he wanted to quit the banking hall for recording booths, he did not have the courage to tell his widowed mother being the first child of the family.
“There is no one that would leave a bank job for music that would not be scared of the career change but at that time, I had a lot of pressure on me.
I lost my father when I was still in school back then in 2008. That period was when Lagos State was doing road expansion so they broke the two shops my mother had on Alaba Expressway. I am the first child of my family so I had to fend for my family.
I had a lot of people who depended on me, so it made the decision even tougher for me when Mastakraft advised me to leave the banking hall for the recording booth.
I listened to his advice and took music seriously. He promised me that after six months, things would change in my life if I embraced music squarely and his prediction came to pass.

“I did not tell my mother when I quit my job, she did not even know about my decision. She thought I was working in the bank because I used to give her money from what I made at small shows I performed at. She did not know I was a musician till I started to prosper,” CDQ said.
