Knives and stabbing competition in working places...literally
7 July 2014 | by (São Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This exquisite dark humored short film looks at the cold relations in an office space where staff literally back-stab each other for new positions, recognition, praise and stuff in order to please colleagues and bosses. To get what you want or to get even at someone who made you look back before our superiors, the only chance you have is to stab the other one in the best possible way. Lesson learned in the hard way by newbie Abbie (Ashby Taggart), who under peer pressure decides he needs to get a knife and use against his new rival.

Though most of the cast provide us with strange performances (only the lead convinces), the concept works very easily, the laughs come in this same way, and no minutes were wasted. A better dialog could be useful and more fun illustrations of the hard obstacles of working spaces could be used here as well.

Gets a 7 as my 777th review written on July 7. 7/10
