Twists toward a satisfying, if not totally believable ending ......
15 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

"Lady in the Box" immediately brings to mind at least a bunch of superior films, including "Fargo", "A Simple Plan", and "Clay Pigeons". That is not to say that "Lady in the Box" is not without it's own entertaining elements. There are just a tad too many stretches of believability for my liking. Darren E. Burrows comes across as a young looking Billy Drago, while Mark Sheppard bears some resemblance to Tom Sizemore. One strong point is the music, which in the opening sequence exhibits a strong Ennio Morricone "Spaghetti Western" influence. This neo-noir has some unexpected twists and is entertaining, if a bit on the long side. Basically the plot is a scenario of compounding problems, with some dark humor thrown into the mix. - MERK
