Office Space

Please Note: This film is no longer showing at Railroad Square Cinema

“A hilarious knock-down of corporate culture” (Michael Sragow, The New Yorker), OFFICE SPACE was the first film directed by cartoonist Mike Judge. “Mike Judge, the creator of “Beavis & Butt-head” and co-creator of “King of the Hill,” has a cool day job. But it wasn’t always thus. From his memories of Dilbert-like employment in anonymous corporate America, Judge has written and directed “Office Space,” a devious comedy about life in the cubicle. Peter Gibbons (Ron Livingston) is a cog in the wheel of Initech, where various nerds and nebbishes punch the clock while their lives just tick away. It’s a place where copiers shred your work in a never-ending state of “paper jam,” where there isn’t even a stapler you can call your own, and where the only thing to look forward to is Hawaiian-shirt Friday… With a judiciously executed hip-hop soundtrack and the same anti-conformist spirit that informs Judge’s TV cartoons, “Office Space” can expect to attract people who aren’t even old enough to be stuck in dead-end jobs” —Jami Bernard, N.Y. Daily News. R. 90 Min. Presented in association with Small Business Waterville.
