10kBullets Raves about THE MAN WITH THE MAGIC BOX!

From: 10kBullets

Content wise, though this film has all the elements that have become synonymous with dystopian Sci-Fi cinema. The result is a refreshing take on familiar elements. And nowhere is this clearer, than the way which this film’s use of time travel. From a production standpoint, there is not an area where this film does not excel. The premise is superbly realized, the narrative is well-executed and key moments are given an ample amount of time to resonate. Another area where this film far exceeds expectations is how its production reinforces the future society depicted in this film.

Performance wise the cast are very good in their respective roles, especially this film’s two leads, Piotr Polak in the role of this film’s protagonist a man named Adam, who has lost his memory and Olga Boladz in the role of Goria, the woman he falls in love with. Another performance of note is Sebastian Stankiewicz in the role of Adam’s closet friend, a janitor who lives inside of a closet at the building where he works with Adam.

Not too be overlooked is George Orwell’s 1984 influence throughout this film. Whether is a be a government watching your every move or how it is forbidden to collect forbidden relics from the past. And the way which this film draws a parallel between the oppressive future society and that same society’s communist past. Can also be seen as an allegory about the dangers of communism.

TERROR 5 Is, “Very Stylish and Atmospheric…Good Macabre Fun” – SearchMyTrash

“A very interesting genre bender that’s at the same time playing with various horror tropes and serving as social commentary and political satire, and as the stories are not only intertwined but the film also shifts from one into the other without clear breaking point, one never knows what one’s up for and what to expect next, making this a rather fascinating experience – which is most certainly also helped by a very stylish and atmospheric directorial effort that includes some grotesque imagery and gore where gore is due, and by a very solid cast. Good macabre fun for sure! – SearchMyTrash

Crypt Teaze Gives DO IT YOURSELF a Rave review

Do It Yourself is a clever game of cat and mouse except this time the mouse has a trick up his sleeve. Quentin Tarantino would be proudDo It Yourself is in a league of its own. There’s so much to love here that I had trouble picking my favorite scenes. One of my favorite aspects is how the main character breaks the fourth wall and speaks directly to the viewer. It adds something special to the already fast-paced plot. There are tricks I’ve never seen in film before and although they’re small they definitely add personality to the film. I love the camera work, the technique, and the attention to detail. If you like action packed films that have a life of their own, I think you’ll love this one. It’s entertaining and keeps you at the edge of your seat. I give Do It Yourself a solid A. It’s a movie I’d watch again. I don’t say that lightly.” — Leslie Melville, CryptTeaze

DoBlu: THE MAN WITH THE MAGIC BOX Is, “Engagingly detailed….eccentric..visually enrapturing”

“…This didactic Polish import finds its power almost entirely on its themes…To its credit, Man with the Magic Box is engagingly detailed. Its dialog is careful and meaningful, requiring time for digestion. Eccentric and wordy, but equally visually enrapturing, Man with the Magic Box becomes an oddity where the depiction of a future Poland under the current elected regime is satisfyingly fertile, yet the plot winds around a potentially fatalist perspective without a solution. The offbeat, even outlandish touches give writer/director Bodo Kox a definitive identity and style, even from what appears like a micro budget.” – DoBlu

Terror 5 demands repeated viewings to fully grasp the scope and genius of the film, which is thought-provoking and confounding at times, but entirely enticing and compelling.” – WeAreIndieHorror

Synopsis: While most of the residents of a small Argentinian town attend a funeral procession following a tragic building collapse, the few who do not will face terrors of their own in this mashup of urban legends from brothers-filmmakers Sebastián and Federico Rotstein. Think bondage, torture, zombies…and governmental corruption. Hernán and Gabriela, are going to a motel without realizing that inside the room, behind the mirror, there is something waiting for them. Lucio and Paulo have a plan to swap girlfriends without realizing what will really happen. A group of friends are watching a snuff movie ignoring that the real terror is sitting next to them. Juan attends a date with Sonia thinking he is going to get laid, when he realizes that she has bigger plans for him. As their primal urges distract them all, local officials are judged innocent of the neglect that caused the building collapse—and then the horror really begins.

DIY: “An entertaining crime-thriller…full of betrayal and deception” – AlienBee

An entertaining crime-thriller (with a sense of humor)…The movie is full of betrayal, deception, this troublesome video tape and even a porno but in the end this central character finds a way to make it out alive – of course, getting to this point is the fun part.” — AlienBee

DO IT YOURSELF, “Bustles with fun in a deluge of crime and betrayal” – ItsBlooginEvil

Do It Yourself …challenges us to take matters, big or small, into our own hands when push comes to shove and backed into a corner. Between Aggelos Papadopoulous’ depth defying photography and the impressive visual effects that flawlessly moves and puts a building in the middle of nowhere, the transcendence image quality is one with this release as it’s practically impossible to conclude what’s real and what a visual effect. Do It Yourself is no Bob Villa special on how to repair the seeping drips from a leaky sink with your own two God-given hands, but the Dimitris Tsilifonis film bustles with fun in a deluge of crime and betrayal and that, my friends, is a priceless enlightened experience.” — It’sBlogginEvil

DO IT YOURSELF Is “Amusing, Confusing, and Entertaining” – Cyptic Rock

“The quality is good enough to peak the interest and curiosity of the viewer unfamiliar with Greek films check out others in the genre from the country. In a way, it sets itself up as the standard Greek Action film for foreigners to judge others. Clearly a brilliant move by the muscle behind this film. Overall, Do It Yourself employs solid writing, but with a complex and sometimes confusing story. A second viewing is in order to try and place the pieces together and see what might have been missed the first time. It is an interesting Greek film that will keep the viewer amused, confused, and entertained.” — CrypticRock
