Watch The Box
    #11394872 - 11/06/09 12:58 AM (8 years, 20 days ago)

My dad is in it.

He plays a NASA scientist and a zombie later on.

The movie seems dumb but it's the same guy who made Donnie Darko.

AKA Richard Kelly.

Richard Kelly also made Southland Tales.

While I really don't understand that movie, I really liked it.

The reviews from The Box are out and with no surprise the reviews are mixed which does not surprise.  It's Richard Kelly for christ's sake, he only makes weird movies.  Anyway, the main consesus is "WTF this was creepy, weird and left you confused."

As a guy who liked Southland Tales (Kelly's last film) which was a huge bust.  I might enjoy this one.

I like the fact that there's at least one Hollywood director that's more about going artistic than mainstream.

That doesn't exactly make me want to watch the movie.

Southland Tales was an amazing movie that made almost no sense at all except to Richard Kelly himself.

I like that shit when you have to think about what you just actually watched rather than it being spoon fed to you.

I'm not sure about the youtube video but "The Box" is based off a 70s short story called "Button Button" written by Richard Matheson.

Richard Matheson is a great writer who wrote several episodes for the Twilight Zone.

Thanks for your post. I will look into it.

According to the article you cited: "Button, Button" was first published in Playboy, June 1970, a short story written by Richard Matheson." just as the OP claimed.

Morale of the story?

Read your own links! :wink:

yep and a youtube video with essentially the same content by writers
claiming never to have read or seen this story/video also claiming that
the movie wasnt based off their video because the dialogue and plot are
different


no creativity in hollywood, they're even remaking crappy 80's TV shows

Hell, maybe he'll like Kelly's version.
