Man loses job, spirals downward, 25 July 2008
Author: acmenaming from United States

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

I saw this film ten years ago and it stayed with me...I'm not sure it was ever even released, but I loved it and found it ahead of its time. Yuppie loses his job and then loses everything one after another:

his wife, apartment, dignity... thought it showed out tenuous and uncertain our existences are, pull one thread and it can all unravel. Surprised to see other commenter saying not to waste time on it, I loved it.

Now with the dotcom crash, it rings more true. Much deeper than "full Monty" and other films that have dealt with a similar kind of loss of job and dignity.
