365 films in 2016: film 57 (Drawcard 2016)

Screen Shot 2016-03-17 at 21.47.40Drawcard is fun little film, there’s something about office movies that lend themselves so well to cinematography, maybe it’s the long lines of repeating cubicles with minimal customisation and matching suits and ties. I’m gonna start by saying if you like Office Space, you’ll probably like Drawcard, thematically they don’t have much in common but that sense of ‘every day is the same’ monotony of 9-5 office life really shines through here. The only real problem with this film is it’s kind of a one trick pony, once you’ve seen it once there’s really no reason to watch it again, that teamed up with some pretty bad acting from the extras In the film (who I’m pretty sure we’re just people who were around the office rather than actors) and you have a pretty one dimensional film.

Drawcard is kind of like an immature joke but underneath that joke it’s a very well written, beautifully shot smart bit of social commentary about adult working life, even with its flaws Drawcard is an enjoyable 7/10.

In 2016 i will be watching 365 films (yes, i know there are 366 days this year) and writing about how I felt about them, I decided to do this just because over the last year or so i’ve Sort of pulled away from film and I wanna start to enjoy watching movies again. This will normally be just notes I made or thoughts I have about the film.
