Brazil on ecstacy
27 May 2004 | by jkauf3See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to go to a screening of Human Error last night, and I will say that I am very glad I went. The movie invokes a kind of absurdity which reminded me of Brazil (one of my favorites), with the three main actors working with perfect synchronicity and comedic timing to make hilarious commentary on workplace relations and ethics. The scenery is mainly CGI, but it is a completely new take on the use of computer imaging and makes the whole film seem like some crazy tribute to Hieronymus Bosch. In the end, the movie makes you laugh a lot, albeit sometimes uncomfortably, and is definitely worth seeing if you get the chance. Whether you are a disgruntled worker, a technophile, or a stoned college student, this movie really has something for everyone.
