The Box

I’m not sure why it just appeared on Youtube, but I just came across this interesting short film written by Michael Palin and Terry Jones. The Box was  made in 1981; I’d never heard of it before. The style is very unusual and very Monty Python. I like how the sound and audio are unlinked, yet tell the same story: we just see pictures  of a large box, but hear what is going on inside it. That strikes me as very innovative. Of course, Palin and Jones derive a  lot off comedy out of it, but it makes me wonder how else such a device could be used.
