" — I have not improvement
 — what there?
 — Boundless human stupidity " (C)

And it all started with that I once, walking through the store with movies, I noticed one strange disc (or cassette, have not exactly remember) with a strange cover, and with three movies at once. I then they really do not heard as a novice cinephile read them synopsis, then he I very much remembered and ingrained me into memory. It was the trilogy "the Cube". So I about her forgot if not the Internet. Just found out that it is a cult series, and more precisely the cult of the first part. Wrote about it is very different things, one said that this treshak cheap, the other masterpiece called, but I was careful viewing. But I recently found the reason, just the Director of this film, Vincenzo Natali removed the new movie "Chimera" I really want to watch, so I decided to get acquainted with his work.

Script brilliant. Generally it is very strange and unique film, such no one is removed will not remove never. The plot is interesting, but at first glance it is very trivial. Many people do not like it is an understatement, open ending and the lack of details, but here is necessary. Just he is very subjective, everyone builds the Rubik's Cube on its own. For someone's a banal slasher, for some fantasy about alien for someone dystopia about the power. And for me it is a philosophical parable with a good sense. Just we will build cubes, not aware of happiness and absolutely not appreciate freedom. But in addition it still a lot of other clever ideas. But I'd there is nothing abstruse. It just a Rubik's Cube and I have collected for yourself some of him made.

Very surprised by the large attention of the Director and screenwriter to detail. Surely it figured the film will become a cult, so did a lot of mysteries for future fans. For example, the names of the main characters are taken from the names of known prisons and even reflect their character. It once I even shot a short film, where was shown the kind of the cube from the outside, but he deleted it, so as promised to no one to tell the secret origin of the cube. And even I very love this kind of science as math, so even know is bad for her. I and not cut on any "simple" numbers said one of the main characters of the film, but but I found one oddity: the case that those calculations that she held about the location of the cameras on very simple not astronomical. Although I still not understand, but mathematicians, I think, will be interesting.

Director of the film is Vincenzo Natali. This his debut work, and the same time, the most famous and some say that the best. But other I haven't seen, but make it in the near future. Removed it simple but with a wealth of talent, enthusiasm and great love. Despite that it's a cruel movie, but he has a soul. And very pleased with a great atmosphere, from the film remains long finish. And its kind of scary to watch at home, claustrophobia never complained, but to sit in a closed room, I suddenly it was scary. And then he is very easy and looks interesting, and have no no complaints on the masterpiece or a deeper meaning. Have no clear of the genre because it absolute films, even art house in the best sense of the word. And I will gladly reconsider once many times.

Actors surprised pleased. No stars here and sight, yeah and actors somewhat overplayed, but especially they reveal your great talent.

The meager budget of the film 365 000 canadian dollars (almost the same as the American dollars) is not allowed a very cool video. Special effects is almost there, but if appears that made quite cheap (say the Studio has made their free of charge). But megarespekt operator Derek Rogers, just the whole film was shot in one small room with one working door for those watched a movie, it seems unlikely.

Soundtrack is very good. To the film is great, but not specifically to listen, even though I love this kind of music.

Conclusion: film is a Rubik's cube. For I had gathered, but everyone will get your, only important to collect. Not understand why he continued, but still see.

An oppressive feeling takes hold as viscous slurry with the very first frame. And it is not clear what that leads into agreed — unknown lack of understanding of how are you in the cube, the closed space, all the more obvious the hopelessness, the danger of traps or yourself fear of death, Yes, in such a strange place. In the debut work of Vincenzo Natali all this appears quite clearly and absolutely realistic. He has managed from almost anything to create an iconic "thing", which is considered to be one of the masterpieces of science fiction movie and large, nor what not like, and stands out in this genre, but only the best sense.

In fact, it is surprising how the film crew managed to pull off such an amazing movie, given the extremely limited budget, and the fact that they built only one room-the cube (which just changed the coloured panels on the walls) with the only operable door. At this the cast is matched successfully.

Along with the unfortunate victims of "cube" wonder why these selected people of them together, and associated anyway, who and what purpose it has created this place, whether salvation. On most questions the answers are not to find even to the end of the movie, but is it does not spoil, so . not always need to know the answers and not all can be placed in a logical and clear framework, sometimes you need to leave the freedom for reflection.

A highly non-trivial idea is embodied masterfully by the Director. The idea of Cuba and systems for closed rooms from one another is amazing, there's even traps can not regarded as catching time, as the enclosed space with the same rooms and the apparent lack of output causes the heart to stop. I'm sure James Dashner, who wrote a terrific series of novels in the genre of dystopia youth "Running on the labyrinth" (adaptation of the first novel of the series now came on screen) inspired in the including and the movie blame this is because  the Cube is a unique and gives rise to reflection imagination.

The film I was hooked even for many years ago when I first looked now reviewing it, I again same emotions plunged in viewing. Not matter what the taste and color of comrades no, I don't understand why some categorically not like this movie. And also, my opinion, comparisons with a series of "Saw" is totally inappropriate, so K. "Cuba" other conditions, the causes, scope and the creators. In General, the 1st part of the trilogy is the best and despite some incompleteness completely self-sufficient, so I recommend to view, I'm sure connoisseurs of unusual Thriller with a fantastic twist would appreciate it a decent movie.

Scanning the above comments, I have often seen the phrase "little clarity", "the ending is not so hot," and etc. Yes, I myself have wondered this question after watching the movie. And then I decided to analyze why I just want to include fantasy and to reach a kind of before their own alternative endings. After all, how and books and has two writer, author and who absorbs the final product. Response to I found very quickly. I just lazy to think, because the last time the movies that come out on our screens. Ceased to hold the aces in the sleeve. Very often they open all their cards almost not the beginning, at the same time depriving us fancy fate. But here perhaps, that's why it is not all is perceived easily. I bet that a thought about who their kidnapped, which was assembled the cube and that over there it.

Also sure that all drew attention to the were selected by the participants. Doctor, a mathematician, a mad genius criminal who is not could not keep one door, girl mathematician, developer of an external enclosure and with strong unstable mentality COP who as I think had come to stage of rabies and to prevent them reach the end, a kind of it could be called cowardly king. why king? Because from the first minutes of the film, he he sat on the throne, to which unfortunately I couldn't resist. And ACE as already everyone understood was "silent kid."

The verdict: the idea is good because she left a lot unsaid, gave the opportunity to think to perform.

P. C. Why do all like to compare this movie with"Saw"? After all, they are very different from script ending with the date of issue. Inappropriate comparison.
