Quotes

[first lines]
Scat: Marketing 101: if you live in any major city, you see 800 ads a day. In most of them, models are going to be looking at you like they want to fuck you. You're so used to this that you don't even notice it. But your body does. Your heart rate increases, you pupils dilate, you breathe faster, you become more alert. You've been tapped.

540th Review: Solid Post-Hipster Business Satire
19 May 2013 | by (the big screen) – See all my reviews

Syrup is a clever piece of film based on Max Barry's blacker than black novel about modern business where saying Wharton and Harvard is more important than effort and hard work. In a world where brand image is everything, everything is up for grabs.

Shiloh Frenandez plays Scat, a guy with dreams but lacking the killer instinct, that is supplied by 6, a platinum blonde who lives for marketing, well-played by Amber Heard - together they look to make a new soft drink and get involved in the ludicrously lucrative world of inter-office politics and global marketing.

This is good solid satire that just about has enough self-knowing irony to cock a snoot at what it's meant to be doing - and we, as the audience are gullible to be fooled and wise enough to know the fun is being fooled.

All in all this is a well-made and well-packaged film that doesn't quite get to the heart of the novel - but it's fun and funny and appeals to the post-hipster too cool for school in all of us.
