Thrilled to rediscover this movie!
The Cube is a challenging and fascinating existential journey. A man is trapped in a cube and receives mysterious visitors who randomly appear and live parts of their lives in the cube with him while he is trying to frantically figure out why he is there. After watching, you'll think of it every time you are in an elevator.
I saw this movie 40 years ago and have not been able to forget it. As a junior in High School, I found it accidentally and spent the whole hour trying to figure out what I was watching and many days afterward talking about it with friends. I often wondered if I dreamed it (or had wandered into The Twilight Zone) because I never met anyone else who saw it or knew what I was talking about. It made a life-long impression on me, but until a few days ago I didn't know it really existed. Last week I read a magazine article that quoted THE CUBE, 1969. Today I discovered it was written by Jim Hensen.
