I was one of the first people to see this amazing thriller before Netflix streamed it on their platform. It was a cute screening at CineBistro in Atlanta, hosted by Kandi and special apperance by Lil Rel, who stars in Bird Box.

If you are into movie that you can make think piece commentary on, Bird Box is the perfect film! You can look at this film and see there is more than meets the eye…ok pun intended on this one. If you seen the movie and want to see my deep take on the interpretation of Bird Box keep reading.

*Spoiler Alert*

If you are seeking for a deeper perspective of the movie Bird Box, this is my interpretation.  The “apocalypse” isn’t a literal one where people are purging themselves it’s a metaphorical one where people are “mentally” killing themselves by what they pay attention to. We are distracted, feeding our minds garbages and essential we are “killing our selves”. We are the demon, our own self-destructive person so that’s why we as the audience don’t see it, because it’s a personal demon for each person.

Some people are immune because it could be a metaphor that the crazy people are woke to stuff and people always assume conscious people are nuts so they have no demons. They are clear with what is going on in the world. The Bird Box deaths are really the fears we have been projected on our whole lives. Whatever fears your parents, your friends, society put on you from childhood into adulthood, is the cripling fear that literally kills them in the movie but figurally kills us in our everyday lives.

Younger children are not born with fear. They are projected over time. That is why the children are imperative to this film, because it shows how young parents instill fear in us. As you can see BOY has more fear in him than GIRL. Girl is more curious and fearless than boy.

GIRL would of been safe with or without her blindfold. She didn’t have fear. My opinion if she were to talk her blindfold off at anytime she would of been safe, similar to the “crazy” people who didn’t need a blindfold. It teaches us that most children do not have many fears holding them back, most fear is a taught emotion.

Sometimes we are all living in a world where the blind is lead the blind in fear. Towards the end the irony is that the true blind people were safe, they didnt live in fear because maybe never saw evil. You know the phrase SEE NO EVIL…can’t really fear evil if you’ve been blind your whole life.

This movie is also a metaphor to me that us as a society are easily distracted, and our distractions could be the death of us. We no longer live in harmony with nature, we are technology driven – materialistic society, and seeing and being engulfed in these distractions can be the death of us. Children again are “taught” these distractions from adults.

Bird Box looks literal but it’s a big metaphor for how our mind society thinks and what is killing us off mentally.
