Reader review:
Cube is a low budget movie made in Canada, or so I thought. I rented it from a local store and popped it in the VCR, ten minutes later I was hooked.
The movie starts out with a man in a cubed room looking and opening small square doors, he checks, and finally enters one. As he jumps in you see him start to walk and than in one quick second the man stops and his whole body falls to the ground in small cube pieces. A metal grate, if that is the word, is finally visible and moves into its small hiding spot. This movie is about five-six men and women being locked into a large cube structure made by man, alien? They do not know, but what they do know is that they must escape, using the special skill that they have, they collaborate on an escape route. They go through the rooms watching for traps but will they make it? I will not tell except it is not what you will be expecting I promise you:-)

Movie poster, Cube (1997)
A group of strangers, each with different personalities and skills, come together in an enigmatic, killer structure in their efforts to escape.

What is the structure? Why is it there? Who built it? Why are they there?

It is said of life, that nobody gets out alive. We try to find some meaning in our struggles, and films such as Cube reflect that. The problem is that resolution and closure are impossible while life continues, and most of us, facing a choice, will struggle to extend that life.

Want to watch a thought exercise to see how it comes out?

P.S. Each of the characters is named after a prison chosen to reflect their personalities.
