Cube Zero (2004)
Follows Cube (1997) and Cube²: Hypercube (2002). In this second sequel, the hero is not just another disoriented captive of the cube's interconnected, often lethal, rooms, but rather a geek named Eric who sits in a control station wrestling with his conscience about inflicting misery on innocent people. Taking orders over the phone from some almighty, unknown power in a distant office, Eric reaches a breaking point and enters the maze himself, intent on helping a woman who doubts his motives. The existential bent of the prior films becomes even more Kafkaesque this time with the arrival of a white-collar team of tormentors: bureaucratic tyrants who can't or won't explain the point of the cube.
