'127 Hours' is based on mountain climber Aron Ralston's memoir about his misadventure in Utah's Canyonlands National Park where he became trapped by a boulder and was forced to cut off his own arm in order to save his life. Boyle has fun playing with the challenge of presenting such a tale by compressing time with things like dream sequences that mirror Ralston's warped mental state that floated in while trapped in the middle of the desert. Grade: A.
