I read an article recently about these mysterious numbers being broadcasted through certain frequencies, that have been going on for decades, and their purpose still hasn't been revealed. Theory is: the numbers being broadcasted are messages to operatives of certain foreign powers in the field. The way they're broadedcasted via radio rather than digital ways makes them impossible to trace. It's pretty interesting. In one of the comments below said article, there was a recommendation of this movie - featuring John Cusack and Malin Akerman, that just so happens to have passed under my radar this past year! So, I gave it a watch.
The Numbers Station is the story of a station where numbers are sent out, about a man and woman involved in the sending of such numbers, and how one day their location is breached and they are hunted; soon stuck in the underground vault awaiting rescue. The characters, as well as the intrigue, is presented nicely at the start of the movie. The locale and routines required to get into it thereafter. And then, the action begins.
Most of the movie takes place in this one bunker, in hope, in despair, in trying to figure out what the intruders are after and how to get out of there and what to do about it. Despite the lack of varied sceneries, it's a pretty suspenseful watch. The actors are good. The situation's believable. The intrigue is clever. It's a professionally filmed movie with a few twists and a rare explosion, on a topic that by being 'real' easily raises my bar of interest a little extra. Great watch.
