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.

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.

Affords an agreeable -- if slight and brief -- chuckle at disagreeable aspects of our modern lives.

A low-budget, mild-mannered comedy, often amusing and at times laugh-out-loud funny.

This story of a temp worker who panics when offered a chance to 'go perm' has a unique comic vision.

Haiku Tunnel, for all its limitations, has a mysterious power I found almost comforting.
