Strange Club's Christmas movie for Monday: THE BOX (2009, Richard Kelly)

Richard Kelly is known for unusual films (Donnie Darko and especially Southland Tales, unquestionably one of my all time favorites). So even his touted attempt at a big "commercial" thriller, 2009's The Box, gets odd and confusing in a way that only he could manage. It was panned by critics and tanked at the box office, but it's pretty interesting and I think it's due for a reevaluation. This is our Strange Club off-kilter holiday pick of 2016. Post goes live Monday, Dec. 19.
