When young, funny temp worker Josh Kornbluth accepts an offer to go perm at a popular San Franciscolaw office, his carefully unstructured, ambivalent, commitment-phobic lifestyle begins to unravel. Unable to complete the simple task of mailing 17 high-priority letters for his boss, Josh suddenly finds himself face-to-face with his unusually chipper co-workers and his inability to deal! Soon, when Josh's morning alarm rings, it's time for him to get up and 'fess up. Written and directed by talented newcomer-brothers Josh and Jacob Kornbluth, HAIKU TUNNEL is a hilarious, super-entertaining comedy about one man's struggle to survive the 9 to 5.
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

It is still funny today if you've ever temped. If you are a writer/actor, I think you'll get it, other folks...I'm not so sure.Published 22 months ago by Bobbie M.

This movie was so bad I couldn't finish it. I have watched some bad movies before, but I always hold out hoping there will be some redeeming quality I can find. Read morePublished on August 12, 2012 by redrumruby
