Things are going swimmingly for the film producer Roy Tilden, his last film is a success and he will soon receive an award for it. But his perfect day changed quickly when he takes an elevator with a keen writer. Directly after the door is closed, the emergency stop button is pressed and he is caught with a bunch of mildly different people.Written by
Gabriel Bologna was stuck in an elevator with Ron Howard in real life. Gabriel happened to have a script under his arm and contemplated pressing the stop button and pitching him the movie, but instead, came up with the idea for "The Elevator" about a struggling writer who traps a producer in an elevator and forces him to listen to his script that he reads from cover to cover.

The Elevator is somewhat of an ego fest for writer/director/star Gabriel Bologna.
It certainly has its moments, but with its inter-cut stories of short films, that of which Bologna is pitching to producer Martin Landau in the elevator, we are slightly bored stupid and handed a heap of amateurish indie film making that had me reaching for the remote control.
With a nice and dark, slightly unexpected, end to it all, The Elevator is worth a watch and does feature great performances from Gabriel Bologna and Landau when alone in the elevator.
A marmite movie would best describe it.
