BLACK BOX centers on a man (Mamoudou Athie) who lost both his wife and his memory in a traffic accident six months earlier. Desperate, he agrees to be hypnotized by a neuropsychiatrist (Phylicia Rashed) who claims she can cure his amnesia. This is just the setup for the fascinating discoveries Nola makes as he slowly untangles the mystery of who he is and what’s really happening to him. BLACK BOX is an entertaining, very well made psychological mystery that sometimes feels like a science fiction horror film. But be assured, this is not a horror film. And the outcome is emotionally powerful.
