Summary:
  • Following a devastating car crash that left him a widower, he struggles to look after his young daughter, Ava (Amanda Christine, terrific in the usually grating role of a precocious child).
  • Nolan has issues remembering the simplest tasks, like when to pick up Ava from school, and overall he just does not feel like himself — and he’s not even sure who or what that would be anyway.
  • Desperate to get to the bottom of things, he engages in a series of unorthodox memory-retrieval sessions with Dr. Brooks (Phylicia Rashad).
  • Directed by Emmanuel Osei-Kuffour Jr., “Black Box” does not deviate from the general guidelines governing the “doctor going rogue” subgenre, but it is an efficient vehicle toying with huge questions of consciousness and ethics.
  • Bonus: the terrifying shots of a disarticulated man crawling upside down on all fours, because Blumhouse is going to Blumhouse.
