In their low-budget, indie-film way, the Kornbluth brothers have come up with a modest, modern-day equivalent of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
Kornbluth is funny, but not funny enough to carry his feature comedy.
A low-budget, mild-mannered comedy, often amusing and at times laugh-out-loud funny.
Josh becomes increasingly distraught and depressed, but not nearly as much as the poor people watching the movie.
As 'Josh's' story wears on, so does one's patience.
Kornbluth, with his softly discombobulated rage, makes you want to see more of him.
Not badly done, but overshadowed by the superior (and better funded) Office Space
A bit of an ego-trip, but an entertaining one.
No Japanese poetry or actual tunnels were used in the making of this film, [just] some pretty clever writing and directing
A sort of stylized, abstract companion piece to Mike Judge's very hilarious Office Space -- a warm, witty and original comedy.
There's just not enough of a story for this to be a feature film.
There are far too many stretches where Josh is simply carried away with being Josh, and we are not particularly amused.
Some people really loved it, I thought it was just okay.
[font=Arial][color=darkred]Josh Kornbluth plays Josh Kornbluth, super temp in the world of office politics and incompetent corporate superiors. He's a working man's hero (well, a secretary's hero) as a round ball of puffy passive-aggressive professionalism. When asked to go permanent for a tax attorney ("We'll even cover your… psychotherapy") is when Josh's world begins to enter into comedic haywire. He's more adept at creatively finding ways around work then at actually accomplishing it. Kornbluth is a terrific comedic and a truly memorable figure. He co-wrote and co-directed the film with his brother from their stage play. 'Haiku Tunnel' often channels the spirit of the wicked satire 'Office Space' (a film that only gets funnier every time I watch it), but has enough of a feel all its own to be distinguishable. The film has some great lines and some imaginative characters to boot. 'Haiku Tunnel' is witty and often times hilarious, not to mention dead-on with its precision like satiric strikes. Kornbluth is a definite entertainment find and 'Haiku Tunnel' is a gem of a film worth looking for.[/color][/font]
