Haiku Tunnel Reviews

October 27, 2001
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.
October 18, 2001
Kornbluth is funny, but not funny enough to carry his feature comedy.
October 9, 2001
A low-budget, mild-mannered comedy, often amusing and at times laugh-out-loud funny.
September 28, 2001
Josh becomes increasingly distraught and depressed, but not nearly as much as the poor people watching the movie.

September 21, 2001
Josh and Jacob Kornbluth emerge intact from their first filmmaking venture and score more hits than misses.
September 21, 2001
Anyone who has been a temporary office drone should find laughs and points of identification within this wry little comedy of manners.
September 21, 2001
Haiku Tunnel, for all its limitations, has a mysterious power I found almost comforting.
September 20, 2001
A funny movie, but like 'Josh' himself, it's too self-absorbed, and maybe too nice, for its own good.
September 18, 2001
Kornbluth has adapted his stage monologue into a ragtag charmer.

September 14, 2001
A sly and captivating comedy of imaginative leaps and gently orchestrated pandemonium.

September 14, 2001
Watching a guy not mail 17 very important letters for sequence after sequence makes you want to conspire with his boss to have Josh accidentally electrocuted by office machinery.
September 14, 2001
Amazingly amateurish, the film lands wide of satirical targets that should be impossible to miss.

Almost from the beginning, it's obvious that Haiku Tunnel is a 40-minute short that imagines itself as a feature film.

September 13, 2001
This is satire on the giddy level of The Simpsons.
September 13, 2001
It wouldn't seem very funny even if 1999's Office Space ... didn't exceedingly outpace it in laughs.
September 13, 2001
Sure to strike a power chord with the millions of secretaries, office assistants and other white-collar grunts.
September 11, 2001
It's unpretentiously low-tech and humorously offbeat.
