A well-acted, knottily plotted tale of corporate intrigue and sexual malfeasance
6 November 2007 | by kerrydouglasdyeSee all my reviews

It's always refreshing to encounter a low-budget indie film that sets out to be about more than a bunch of friends sitting around yakking, dating, and complaining about how hard it is to turn thirty. Sarbane's-Oxley takes as its jumping off point issues of SEC compliance and the merger between two technology companies ... but wait, don't start yawning yet! This is just the backdrop for a twisty, tangled, often very funny tale featuring greed, corporate espionage, double-crosses, and illicit sex.

That acting level is a solid grade up from your average indie (almost all the leads, along with notable work from a couple of very funny side characters), as is the cinematography, with its gracefully mobile camera. The story gleefully piles on the complications, wrapping its hero in a firm knot of familial, connubial and fiscal tensions that cathartically unravel as the movie climaxes. There's a lot of fun stuff here.

For a first feature, this is an amazingly accomplished production. If I had one complaint, it might be that I would have liked to see a little more nuance from the C.E.O. villain -- there's nothing particularly unrealistic about a character who's just a greedy, manipulative jerk, but I always enjoy characters who have more than one side on display.

But that's a nitpick. In general, Sarbane's-Oxley is an unusually mature and complex achievement from first time filmmakers who undoubtedly have more great things coming.
