Here’s the beginning of Marcy’s review, with a few heavy-handed edits from yours truly.
It’s a very special version of hell: fill an office suite with qualified executives, lock them in, and have them duke it out for a top job. Request they fill out duplicate forms, subject them to twisted mind games, offer food that has gone bad… and see how far they’re willing to go. Far below the corporate windows, G8 protests are raging in the streets of Madrid, but it’s going to get even uglier inside. That’s the premise of The Method, Marcelo Piñeyro‘s unique, Survivor-in-a-boardroom contribution to the suddenly popular genre of the biting office satire.
El Método. Marcelo Piñeyro, 2005. ***
