Finally! Why can't they make more movies like this one?
16 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a great film, I just saw it today and was so impressed that I had to leave a comment as soon as possible.

It reminded me of The Office, without the comic twists. Instead, the comedy is there because the characters are people we all know. But the real emotions are dramatic.

The other film this reminded me of is oddly enough, The Sting with Paul Newman and Robert Redford. I'm not giving away the ending. But it is an extremely rare privilege to get an ending like you do in Bureaucracy. It's a shame you have to go that far back to find a film that evokes the same type of emotions when the lights come back on.

Make a point to see Bureaucracy if you want to see a film that does everything you want in a movie.
