The Box

Went and saw the movie The Box this weekend. Overall, not a bad movie. Good acting, good mystery, excellent 1970s details.

It is set in 1976. The hair, the clothes, the furniture, the big eye glasses. All very accurate. I like the groovy wallpaper they have. Perhaps a little too much with the matching fabric bench but that’s how it was I suppose.

The whole movie has a creepy Twilight Zone feel. Turns out it was once actually an episode and is based on a short story. Also, done by the same guy as Donnie Darko so has a similar atmosphere and lots of unanswered questions.
