Plot
When office temp Josh Kornbluth (played, in semiautobiographical style, by Josh Kornbluth) is offered a permanent position as secretary for a high-powered attorney, his entire world begins to crumble. The psychological pressure of commitment proves almost too much to bear, leading him to delay mailing 17 very important letters--an oversight that forces him into an all-night adventure that is simultaneously petty and epic. Kornbluth has gained prominence in the world of solo performance, but this is a fully realized film (albeit one in which Kornbluth occasionally talks directly to the camera, offering amusing commentary) that vividly captures the insidious anxiety that office work can inspire. Kornbluth's plump face is engaging; you'll find yourself oddly touched (and a little appalled) by his self-destructive behavior. Haiku Tunnel is a strong contribution to the expanding subgenre of office comedies. --Bret Fetzer
