Biography

Carrière
Le goût de Cortés pour la réalisation a commencé à un stade précoce. À 16 ans, il avait déjà réalisé son premier court métrage en Super 8. En 1998, il a réalisé le court métrage Yul qui a remporté plus de 20 prix et en 2000, il a réalisé 15 Days, un faux documentaire qui lui a valu plus de 57 prix dans différents festivals, devenant ainsi le plus primé des courts métrages espagnols de tous les temps.

En 2007, il a dirigé The Contestant (Concursante en espagnol), son premier long métrage qui a reçu des applaudissements critiques et a obtenu plusieurs prix, dont le Grand Prix de la Critique au Festival du film de Málaga. En 2010, il acquiert une renommée internationale avec le thriller Buried, avec Ryan Reynolds dans le rôle-titre. Le film fut présenté au Festival du film de Sundance, et a reçu un succès considérable. Grand admirateur du cinéma d'Alfred Hitchcock, il réalise avec Buried un huis clos éprouvant avec un cercueil pour tout lieu d'action, ce qui représentait un défi à la fois narratif et technique. Tourné en dix-sept jours, avec une équipe minimaliste, Rodrigo Cortés confirme son style efficace et enlevé.

Cortés dirige ensuite Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver, Elizabeth Olsen et Cillian Murphy dans le film Red Lights, un thriller psychologique, qui sort en 2012.

On October 23, 2006, Paul Conroy, an American civilian truck driver working in Iraq, wakes up and finds himself buried alive in a wooden coffin, bound and gagged, with only a Zippo lighter and a BlackBerry phone at hand. Although he initially has no idea how he got there, he starts to piece together what has happened to him. He remembers that his and several other trucks were ambushed by terrorists, who killed his colleagues; he was hit by a rock and passed out. He receives a call from his kidnapper, Jabir, demanding that he pay a ransom of $5 million by 9PM or he will be left in the coffin to die.
