Film Review — THE OFFICE — Korean Film Festival -*nyc
Review by the estimable Tanimaru
The opening image of a man sitting alone in front of a cup of coffee is just the beginning.
Within moments the blood begins to fly in THE OFFICE.
Stylishly lensed and directed, the film takes a curious look at a “team” within an office after one of there principal members committs murder. Like most offices, the politics are thick and in the case of this office – even deadly. A dedicated police detective works hard to get to the bottom of the crime as more grizzly murders are committed.
It is not until the end that we realize the strange connection between the company man and a new intern that has propelled all the events. Hitchcock-like in places and borrowing directly from the Coen Brothers’ BLOOD SIMPLE, THE OFFICE is a stylish romp and will make you never look at your co-worker the same.
