Richard Kelly is a talented and unique writer. Even his disappointing sophomore picture, Southland Tales had vision and flare and although it never could measure up to Donnie Darko, I could at least appreciate portions of it. Outside of some individual scenes, The Box doesn’t have much going for it.
This is truly an awful movie, and the only reason I gave this half a star is due to Diaz trying to fake a southern accent. It truly is the only reason to bother with viewing this muck.
