THE BOX (2009)
Lewis family finds a mysterious box on the porch of their house. It’s an ordinary box with a button. Later, mysterious old man comes to tell them how the box works. If they push the button, someone on somewhere will die and they will receive one million dollars. They have 24 hours to decide. Norma and Arthur Lewis are starred by Cameron Diaz and James Marsden. The mysterious old man is played by Frank Langella. We have recently seen his impressive act in “Frost/Nixon” (2008). The Director is Richard Kelly, the Director of “Donnie Darko” (2001) who received many good reviews from movie critics. Too see thiz kind of movie, we have to put aside our logic for a while because everything that you are about to see is very absurd. Thiz story is taken from one of the episodes of TV series “Twilight Zone” in 1980s era. The film sets in 1976. I think the Production Designer Alec Hammond have already done his job very well. Everything we see is truly 1970s. The music is also thrilling, it’s just like we have been watching 1970s horror movie. In the end, there will always be a dilemma in our life, whether something we have ever done? Or something that we never do?
