    ★★★★½

    Vincenzo Natali is at his peak with this high concept horror. There is a cube. There is death. And that is all.

    If you're someone who wants exposition, or a fuller sense of world building, or some convenient twists to wrap up the enigmas of a plot, Cube is not for you.

    The films that followed face-planted because they tried to stretch the concept beyond the cube. But that completely misses the point. There is a cube. There is death. And that is all.

    The original 'Cube' was a high concept thriller from Vincenzo Natali, a director who has devoted himself to high concept thrillers.

    Like the ouroboros snake that disappears into itself Predestination might have easily become all consuming and cyclic in its time-travelling absurdity were it not for outstanding performances by Sarah Snook and Ethan Hawke.

    If you look hard enough I'm sure the paradoxes incurred by this time-travelling whodunnit will drive you to madness, but to its credit the film clips along at a pace that whizzes past the plot holes without losing sight of the core plot points. If you're a fan of films like Source Code, 12 Monkeys and Primer then this is a definite must-see.
