Thought provoking perspective on any entry level position

I found this movie to be a thought provoking perspective on any entry level career choice. “A day in the life” would sum it up quite nicely.

Worst movie I've ever seen

I wouldn't waste any time watching this movie... Nothing happens in it at all and it's the most boring movie ever.... If you wa t to put your child off movies for life then this may well be the movie to do this... I wouldn't even give it one star to be honest... Anyone who gives it more than 1 star is either been paid by whoever made it or fell asleep while watching it and didn't want to admit it.

Hard to watch

There's lots of brilliant stuff in this movie; the performances are great, and the camera is always lining up interesting Vermeer-meets-Coleville tableaux that click into place and then move on. And it really conjures up the soul-sucking side of the contemporary workplace. The flip side is that it then becomes something like 86 minutes of spiritual deprivation. It's not exactly humourless, but it's plenty tense and there's no relief on the way.
