Glaring Omission

How could I have forgotten my favorite comedy of the last fifteen years from my “15 in 15” list? The ending is a bit trite, but Office Space has provn to be one of my most reliable comfort films for some time and a great satire of 1990s dotcom office culture, too. Looking forward to Mike Judge’s latest, Idiocracy.

Oh, and Badger’s list reminds me that I should have at least mentioned Gilliam’s 12 Monkeys, the film that probably sent me off on my dissertation/book project in the first place. She also mentions at least one film I’ll be adding to my Netflix cue ASAP, Jafar Panahi’s Dayereh.

    A new Mike Judge movie? Starring Luke Wilson? Awesome. Do you know when it’s coming out? (I can’t find a release date)

    I just know the information from IMDB, but the film looks somewhat promising: “a dumbed down culture” in the distant future. Sounds like it might be a fairly critical film, much like “Office Space” and “Beavis & Butthead.”

    Luke Wilson’s presence is also a plus.
