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

Better than Office Space
22 August 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently caught this movie playing on the Independent Movie channel. I rarely comment on movies but found this one to be quite inventive and humorous. The characters were well developed and were close to what you would expect to find in almost any office. In comparison to that other office based comedy, Office Space, this one is actually worth watching. I was pleasantly surprised to have run across such a gem like this.

I am pleased to recommend this movie for someone looking for something a bit unconventional. There has not been a couple of brothers like the Kornbluth's since the Coens. If Haiku Tunnel is any indication, they will be bringing us great things to see for a long, long time.
