There is a scene at the beginning of Box of Moonlight that is particularly memorable. The proper foreman, AI Fountain, who is obsessed with time, works with his team on a construction assignment in an unknown small town. He has difficulties in relating to his fellow workers in a natural and spontaneous way. Despite that, one evening he decides to accept their invitation to one of the hotel rooms to play a game of poker and to be sociable. As he approaches the room, he can hear that they are having a discussion about him and what do they say? That he is so boring that clocks stop, stiff as a poker and completely hopeless as a human being. Only an actor like John Turturro can convey the feeling of pain, of resignation that arises from such an awkward, humiliating situation.
