What to know

critics consensus

Neil LaBute's pitch-black comedy is a masterful exploration of male insecurity, and it's elevated by a breakout performance by Aaron Eckhart as a businessman who likes to play psychological games. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for In the Company of Men

  • Aug 01, 2014
    It's interesting to watch "In the Company of Men" unfold, but the contents are so incendiary that it threatens to explode in our faces.

    It wrings some good tension out of its bonkers plot, but by the end "In the Company of Men" feels like it's all concept, middling craftsmanship, and no valuable message.

    What we have here is a rare kind of a movie. It relies solely upon dialogue for entertainment. The director/writer Neil LaBute shows off some of the best writing imaginable, going from scene to scene, one static shot after another. It's just the life of two employees and what happens at the workplace. Without a doubt, "In the Company of Men" portrays life so realistically that it manages to capture the interest of the audience. We're intrigued by what's happening, even though it's shocking, disturbing, and painful to watch, and we're drawn to it.

    As abhorrent as the plan the characters in Neil LaBute's, 'In the Company of Men', concoct it's only matched by long takes of heavy misogynistic dialogue scenes. Which character is the victim, the smartest, the least despicable? There's no correct answer and LaBute is at his finest as a provocateur with his brilliantly acted debut 'In the Company of Men'.
