Storyline

Haiku Tunnel is a frenetic office comedy about a neurotic male secretary who is a terrific temp but a horrible perm. When his new boss (a tax attorney who just may be Satan) gives him 17 very important letters to mail out, he doesn't, and the ensuing complications bring him face-to-face with a lifetime of personal demons. Written by Anonymous

If you really are a secretary
15 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Having been a temp and a secretary, I loved this movie because I felt it was pretty true to the ridiculous nature of office work. Obviously, it was ostentatious, but that's the kind of movie it is - if you're not into melodrama, you'll only be annoyed. If you did a movie about office work that wasn't melodramatic, you'd fall asleep; Look at Office Space. I felt like I really kind of identified with Josh, but I guess I'm just a big nerd. The fact that it didn't really have a story is a tribute to temping - you never really get anywhere. Even when you "go perm" those secretary jobs are useless, you don't get anywhere until you leave that type of employment. Look at Marlina, the "head secretary," even she hadn't gotten anywhere. Anyway, I felt like it was perfect for anyone who's ever been there. I think we've all had upper management we thought was the Prince of Darkness Himself, or icy supervisors with no pulse.
