Cube (1997)


Directed by Vincenzo Natali

1997 • R • English • 90 min.

When six strangers wake up inside a strange prison comprised of booby-trapped square rooms, they have to figure out how to work together to survive the traps and escape. From Vincenzo Natali, this indie gem from the late 1990s is the peak of innovative science fiction born from modest means. Commentary on government overreach, the flaws of the penal system, and fascism, the film does a lot with a little.

Cast: Nicole de Boer, Nicky Guadagni, David Hewlett
