Black Box, a horror/mystery/sci-fi film about what happens to Nolan, a single father after he loses his wife and his memory in a car accident is a film I don’t regret watching.

Starring Mamoudou Athie (Uncorked (2020), Phylicia Rashad, Amanda Christine, and from writer/director Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour; the story centres around an agonising experimental treatment that causes Nolan to question who he is.

What I like most about Black Box is the unexpected direction the story takes at its most interesting and engaging point. I also enjoyed all the performances. Especially Athie and Christine’s. The latter of whom did a great job of playing a child who’s had to grow up far to fast.

As for what I like least about Black Box, that would be the first third of the movie because it played/felt a tad flat. Thankfully, once we get to around the thirty five minute mark, things get very interesting indeed, through to the very end.

Give Black Box a chance if you’re curious. Especially for the last two thirds and good performances.

Happy Film Loving
