If there’s one thing Richard Kelly knows how to do well, it’s mess with his audience’s minds. The director of cult favourite Donnie Darko and twisted apocalypse trip Southland Tales returns with his third feature The Box, a Twilight Zone-style thriller that pits a young couple (James Marsden and Cameron Diaz) against fate when they are presented with a device by a mysterious stranger. Will they or won’t they push the button, killing someone they don’t know to get a cash prize? And is there a greater conspiracy behind it?
