Critic Reviews for The Method (El Metodo)
The movie doesn't trust that an illuminating comedy of pathetic people can be entertaining for long, so it sprinkles some hormones on the proceedings.
The film loses some of its sting once the race narrows, but its outcome and the politically, emotionally astute fade-out are suitably devastating.
The Method is a funny film that touches on a corporation's responsibility to society, the price of ambition and the persistence of workplace sexism.
Smartly and seamlessly blending a cast of talented Argentine and Spanish thesps, Pineyro seems to be testing how much cinema he can derive from a restricted space.
...The Method is a tartly performed, compulsively watchable glass-tower And Then There Were None, in which the only blood that gets spilt comes from places that hurt the most: pride and ego.
Audience Reviews for The Method (El Metodo)
"El Método" is a very well acted movie shot basically in one set with a brief view of the contemporary wild capitalism through the dispute of qualified applicants to a direction position in a corporation.

And in the case of corporations, there is a sense of entitlement when they have multiple applicants for the same position and can simply pick and choose however they please. The film highlights an extreme but not totally unrealistic tactic, the Gronholm Method, which turns out to be a complex form of sadistic degradation, setting the candidates against each other in order to tear each other down. So, is the carrot at the end of the stick really worth it? And why do we have to play their games, anyway? This is exactly why the protestors are out in the streets battling with the police.[/font]
