Critic Reviews for New Guy
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.
This is Ebiri's first feature after directing four shorts. He shows talent, but shouldn't give up his day job just yet.
From the co-workers' macho hazing rituals to the pseudo-arty gotcha ending, New Guy never quite locates a sensibility to call its own.
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.
Combining the elements of comedy and thriller isn't easy, especially for a first-timer. But Ebiri pulls it off.
Audience Reviews for New Guy
I didn't have high expectations for this movie, but I actually quite enjoyed it for the most part. I'm a big fan of black comedy and this film fits into that category well. It's low budget and cheesy, but it's also just creepy enough, in a mundane way, that it kept me interested. I wish it had had a better ending, but overall I liked it.
