Timely. Cutting-edge.
3 May 2009 | by bakirbySee all my reviews

"Bureaucracy" takes the frustration of an employee in a dead-end job and pushes it to the extreme. The viewer sees a mild-mannered, soft spoken low-level bureaucrat bothered by his failure to advance and the lack of respect exhibited by his do-nothing boss. It's a situation many can identify with, and given the current economic malaise facing the country, is a timely story to tell. The protagonist's response to his conditions is extreme, but thought provoking. Without giving away further plot details, I would describe the film as "cutting edge," as I am not sure I have ever seen anything quite like it. Viewers who enjoy movies with an element of suspense, but also enjoy thought provoking social commentary will enjoy the film. I highly recommend it.
