The Box

The Box

All hail the author of the story Button, Button which is the basis of this movie played by Cameron Díaz (whatever she does she’ll still be our girl from The Mask and There’s Something About Mary), with a soundtrack composed by the indie rock group Arcade Fire and wardrobe by the lady who dressed Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. Richard Matheson (yup, him, from I am legend) wrote this fable-parable about a box with a button. Just that? No, when you press it a million dollars appears but at the same time, somewhere on the planet, someone you don’t know... dies. How many times would you press the button? Directed by Richard Kelly, who won independent cinema glory with his Donnie Darko and the actors include Frank Langella. In the USA the film is prohibited for anyone under 13 due to its “disturbing images”.
