when they're used (in interrogation rooms, for example), one side is brightly lit and the other is dimly lit. The person on the brightly lit side can't see the light coming from the dark side since his own reflection is much brighter than the dim scene coming through the mirror.

I think we can confidently say that no physical mirrored box would ever be able to contain all this light. I think the only thing that could really trap light like that would be a black hole. Light would go in, but not come out again.
would i just be creating a black hole? i thought photons had no mass, so if no mass why would the gravity increase?
This question is driving me insane!If it take a box with *perfect* 100% reflective, no-loss one-way mirrors on the internal surface and I shone a bright light into the box, how much light could it contain?If I got a really bright light and shone it for a hundred or so years, would the box continue to hold the light?Is there a limit to how much light can be contained in one place?If I placed the box next to a really bright star for a million years, then smashed the box, would the light all burst out at once and would it cause any damage?Somebody please 'illuminate' me as I keep coming back to this every now and then and it's bugging me!
There is no need of silver or other material for a perctly reflecting mirror: you only need to inject a leser light inside a glass fiber at the right angle (total internal reflection).
nO IT WOULD BE A LITTLE BIT HEAVIER
