User Reviews

similar to Office Space, but a little darker
16 November 2004 | by areola14See all my reviews

One of my top 20 movies for sure.

The characters are what make this movie. And the touch or surrealism. The premise is that four coworkers make a bet that whoever is the last to remain inside wins a month's salary. Until then they live their entire lives inside this bubble.

One of my favorite props is that even the smokers can live their entire existence indoors; they smoke in these little tubes inside the building.

Some of the characters are a kleptomaniac boss, a suicidal cubicle slave, a directionless young office worker, and the initiator of the bet, who had succeeded living indoors for something like a year.
