They are rare, but there are a few - All is Lost is the most recent, and has very limited dialogue (for want of a better word - monologue) as unlike Castaway, where he talks to 'Wilson', there is no one for him to talk to. Monster in a Box and The Telephone are two others I can think of.
They do take a certain skill to hold your attention for the length of the film. Can you watch them, or do you pass?

I saw that too. Agree with you, that it didn't quite carry it, but worth it for the ending. I also find in these films, I start yelling at the character (like I need to make up for the silences) when they do something stupid or annoying...hee hee
