95295. I'm looking for a movie, although I can't remember what it was called or who acted in it. This man went to a town looking for a house (I think), and he answered a public telephone that was ringing. Basically, the town (or the people in the town) wouldn't let him leave. He tried to escape, and I remember that involved a scene with electric pylons. Anyway, he didn't escape, and a year later, another man came to the town and met the guy who I was talking about earlier. The first guy then pressed a note in the new guy's hand that said something along the lines of "Leave while you can" under the pretence of handing him a business card (because if I recall, everywhere was monitored). The new guy didn't listen, and the movie ended on the new guy walking out of the bar, hearing the public telephone ringing, and answering it. I'm really sorry if this is such a bad description. If anyone can help me, I'd be very grateful!
