The Box 2021
La caja (original title)
1h 32m | Drama | 11 November 2022 (USA)
A Mexican teenager sets out to collect his fathers remains, only to be sucked into the underbelly of the manufacturing industry.
This movie is an interesting movie about a kid who goes from Mexico City to the US border to pick up his father’s remains. But then the kid spots a man whom the kid is sure is his father, still alive. Soon the kid is sucked into being part of the dark exploitation machine that surrounds the big factories in Mexico bordering the US.
Unfortunately, in its last quarter, the movie loses its focus and becomes much less engaging. Also, while the actors get the job done, they don’t provide the value-added depth that fine actors can bring to a movie. Where’s Demian Bichir when you need him?
