I am confused by many of the negative reviews - the plot line was tight, unified and engaging. The sound quality, underscoring and music is exceptional. The story far from loses its way, but hits its stride as life truly falls apart around the main characters. An invisible son and hippie brother? De rigueur now days. Corporate mind control? Check. Late capitalism has its perils, and the reviews here seem to show that only some of us are ready. Of course, the fact that I am reviewing this on Amazon means you should most likely ignore it anyway. Anyone who reads contemporary philosophy will draw (most likely intentional) parallels between Zizek's warnings on Utopian Dreaming, to his quoting of Christ's "they know now what they do" or sexual plague in "A Plague of Fantasies" in late capitalism. Baudrillard's vision is presented here without nostalgia - perhaps unrecognized by the Matrix lovers (Baudrillard's visions are more appealing when taking red or blue pills, I suppose). This is wonderful filmmaking, pure and simple. I commend the cast (many of whom I love for their dark and equally insane projects from Archer to Arrested Development). Well done.

Well, I won't go so far as to say that George Washington Winsterhammerman is the 21st century Sam Lowry. But I loved the understated insanity spiked with corporate nothingisms and friendly Jeffers logo salutes. Imagine Wes Anderson reworking Equilibrium. The wheels do come off the wagon a bit at the end. Seemed like someone realized they only had 10 more minutes left and started gluing together sweepings from the editing room floor. If you're looking for the Will Farrell style over-the-top silliness, this may not be your best choice. But I thought this was perfectly weird and charming.

The 2010 low budget indie film `Visioneer' starring Zach Galifianakis presents the audience with a vision of a possible dark, authoritarian future. Be prepared for a powerful, clear and disturbingly accurate vision of a world without self awareness and purpose.

Synopsis: This is dark comedy at its depressing best, or at least that's how it begins and maintains through most of the movie. Yes this is truly a future world without any reason to exist. In the future scheme of things only productivity is valued, individual pursuit of excellence, friendship, love and anything else worthwhile you may think of no longer holds any meaning. We have become rats in a maze and nothing more. The loss of meaning, the understated confusion and the thinly guised desperation simple exudes from the screen. Laid out before us is a society in utter pain and that pain is exquisitely displayed on the face of the film's star, Zach Galifianakis. He is a man about to explode, literally, which is what people do when they can no longer stand living in a world with no meaning. Our hero has reached the point of critical mass and realizes that he must either break free and discover personal happiness or explode. It isn't easy in a society that has all but lost the ability to look outside the box and act independently but he must try or die.

Critique: `Visioneer' is quite a unique movie and definitely not something for anyone in search of a light hearted, unchallenging viewing experience. This film has an uncanny ability to push a lot of emotional buttons most viewers would not want to be pushed. The heavy emotional angst dealt with in the film will slowly but surely begin to be felt by the audience and trigger a personal reaction to the storyline.

Regardless of this films category, it isn't very comedic.

What it is, is abstract. It doesn't really fit into any category I can think of. It's very strange. But it is beautiful. I think you will really appreciate the value of this film if you work a mundane, pointless job. Too many films nowadays tell their stories so blatantly, that everyone watching it pulls the same thing from them. But a good piece of art, even in TV and film mediums, can be analyzed and interpreted differently from person to person. If you can't appreciate the value of this film now, I think you will at some point later in life.

I just finished the movie and, sorry, but it made me cry it was so beautiful.
I had expected this to be more of a comedy with Zach (of course there were laugh-out-loud parts), but really it was the underlying meaning of meaningless of existence in society and overcoming through love prevails.
I highly recommend this wonderful film.

As Jared Drake's "Visioneers" establishes its bleak portrait of the corporate world in a dystopian future, I loved the idea and premise behind the enterprise. Low-key, mundane, and loaded with banal monotony, the work day that Zach Galifianakis and his colleagues must endure as office drones is brought to life with exquisitely uncomfortable awkwardness. As the DVD cover suggests a marriage of Mike Judge's "Office Space" with Terry Gilliam's "Brazil", it seems a relatively apt comparison from the film world--but Ray Bradbury's "Fahrenheit 451" also seems to be a relevant influence. But taking these great cues and starting with a winning hand, it soon becomes clear (especially in the film's second half) that the screenplay really doesn't know where to go. It's a shame, too--I was rooting for this to be a little undiscovered gem--but I started watching this with three friends and by the end, only I remained. Billed as a black comedy, anyone expecting a riotous and laugh-out-loud film should check their expectations before proceeding.

Galifianakis works for the renowned Jessups Corporation--headed with great comedic aplomb by D.W. Moffett. Preaching happy thoughts and productivity, the office has become a mind numbing existence. His discontent wife (the always reliable Judy Greer) seeks solace and comfort from a book on happiness and current fads to fill her empty days. And his brother (a spry James LeGros), recently released from prison, takes up residence in his backyard and is soon leading a movement to endorse freedom of expression. In a land where critical thought and feelings are frowned upon, it's not easy to get by. When people start to explode, literally, from boredom and repressed emotion--it serves as a catalyst to reevaluate life.
