As texting has become more and more normalized on-screen, it’s important to make a distinction: phone calls are an incredibly cinematic thing, while texting very rarely is. You’d think it would be the other way around—phone calls require a lot of dialogue and could very easily devolve into exposition dumps, while texting is a completely visual thing. More often than not, though, phone call sequences give multiple actors a chance to show off their talents.

Phone calls in horror films or thrillers amp up the tension—the protagonist and antagonist get a chance to shoot a few threatening lines at each other without even being in the same room. Phone calls in comedies or dramas allow for characters to communicate their feelings for the person on the other end of the line easily. For this reason, it’s worth taking a look at some of the best phone call sequences in film.
