Movies, shorts, and plays: Talking heads or dialogue-heavy?

I'm looking for some inspiration for some ultra-low-budget, possibly just for fun movie making. Even if they had a big budget, can you point me to movies, plays, student stuff on youtube, web episodes, anything that moves a story along, and culminates it, primarily through dialogue and subtext?
I want to create something where *something actually happens,* but it's "just" a few people talking alone in 1-3 locations. I suspect stuff like this is usually abysmal and navel-gazing, but I'll take that as a challenge.
