Disaffected dot com guy tries to live out his dream on severance pay
28 October 2005 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

Shot in B&W and containing a homage to Bogart, it is kind of like "Slacker" with a bit of plot and updated to 2005. Contains some funny moments and sends up corporations and some of their denizens pretty effectively. My rating was kicked up by the amusement value of tracking some of the locations used around Austin. Hence my "Slacker" reference. Some of the "Slacker" locations are no more or much changed. This gives Austin lovers a new venue game. Interestingly enough, it showed at the Austin Film Festival but not at that fest's most funky Austin venue (The Hideout). That's interesting because The Hideout is the star location of the film. Here are a couple of other places that you will see besides the usual office buildings and the Capitol: Austin Club exterior, SoCo exterior (Lucy in Disguise), the strip center where Room Service is located (is that Room Service where he finds the dinner jacket?).
