Terrific corporate mockumentary
29 December 2004 | by (Aylesbury, England) – See all my reviews

Memron is an excellent little spoof documentary in the style of "This Is Spinal Tap" or "Best In Show". The camera follows the antics of a group of newly unemployed corporate cogs following a shakeout at the fictional Memron corporation. The disgraced ex-CEO has also suffered though, and has been burdened with a 'lengthy' sentence behind bars to admonish him for his crimes.

The dialog was convincing, and the characters were well developed (especially amazing considering the number of characters and the relatively short runtime). The realism might be attributed to the fact that there was no script, with all of the dialog improvised by the cast. Especially good were Evie Peck playing a woman of somewhat 'questionable' sexual discrimination, John Lehr's portrayal of a completely selfish and insensitive middle manager and Michael McShane as the morally bankrupt (though financially solvent) ex-CEO.

Everyone who has worked in a corporate/office environment can relate to the mix of personalities and feel some sympathy for their predicament. Even if you can't relate to the subject, it's a bright, cheery and funny film. I was expecting some bitterness considering the subject matter, but this is not the case. Although the film certainly contains sharp social commentary on corporate culture and greed, it maintains a high feel-good factor throughout.

Most of the comedy originates from the absurd situations in which the characters find themselves. There is an absolutely hysterical scene involving a ankle bracelet and a painting which is so bizarre and zany that it deserves to be absorbed into cult cinema consciousness.

I highly recommend this film!
