After a while the overpacked plot begins to feel like an afternoon meeting that won't end.
For his first official foray into the genre, To brings his usual knack for cutting movement and stunningly composing figures against space to a world of pure stylization.
Johnnie To and Sylvia Chang's stage-to-screen musical is a dazzling entertainment set against the backdrop of the 2008 financial crisis.
A must-see for anyone looking for a thoughtful, and genuinely spectacular new musical.

Office is undermined by a simplistic screenplay lacking the nuances and frisson one expects of a cutting-edge satire of a capitalist world propelled by graft and greed.
"Office" isn't a radical critique of capitalism, but it gets its digs in nevertheless.
