Movie Info

In this witty and understated thriller, Gregg (Kelly Miller) has just hired on as a new office drone at a large and faceless corporate office. While Gregg has heard some curious rumors about his immediate predecessor and senses he hasn't been welcomed warmly by his co-workers, he doesn't think much of it until he stays late one evening and is locked into the building. As the night wears on, Gregg discovers his employers are looking for more than just hard work and the right attitude from their workers, resulting in a terrifying ordeal. The New Guy was the debut feature film from writer and director Bilge Ebiri.

Critic Reviews for New Guy

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

The first feature film by Bilge Ebiri, a New York Magazine film critic, is an unusual hybrid, a surreal 'cubicle comedy' that subtly morphs into a paranoid thriller.

November 10, 2004 | Rating: 3/5

This is Ebiri's first feature after directing four shorts. He shows talent, but shouldn't give up his day job just yet.

November 10, 2004 | Rating: 2/4

From the co-workers' macho hazing rituals to the pseudo-arty gotcha ending, New Guy never quite locates a sensibility to call its own.

November 9, 2004

Alas, the movie is less clever than its characters.

November 11, 2004 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Performances are solid and the washed-out, blue-tinged cinematography lends a sickish aura to the soul-eroding cubicles, offices and conference rooms that all too vividly evoke the mind-set of depressed wage slaves.

November 10, 2004 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Combining the elements of comedy and thriller isn't easy, especially for a first-timer. But Ebiri pulls it off.
