Waydowntown Review


OK
"It's sucking my will to live!" quipped Garth of Wayne's World. Now, is that corporate America's fault, or our insistence of living in the closeted environment of our careers instead of acknowledging the outside world? How long could we go through the same corridors, talking to the same exact people, day in and day out, without losing our mental faculties?

Tom (Fabrizio Filippo), Sandra (Marya Delver), Randy (Tobias Godson), and Curt (Gordon Currie) are, possibly due to boredom, in the midst of a bet to see who can survive the longest without leaving the corridors and buildings that connect their downtown area. A month's worth of salary is at stake to prove their stubborn will surpasses their peers. What helps is that most of the area near their office is connected to life's necessities though passages that join one building to the next.

Very Good

A tremendously inventive, ironically relevant big-city-office dark comedy, the sardonic but whimsical "waydowntown" is a sign of our times in workaholic Western society. About a quartet of friendly office rivals who all live and work in an interconnected, high-rise office-mall-apartment complex, the movie begins a few weeks into a bet they've made to see who can stay sane the longest without setting foot outside -- and every one of them is about to crack.

Even with a month's salary at stake and the only the mall to provide amenities like food (and more importantly coffee), none of these young drones thought the others would last this long. Arrogant, insolent hipster Tom (Fab Filippo) has been getting through the days by picking on a suicidal nebbish cubicle mate (Don McKellar), flirting with mall shoppers, visiting his car in the parking garage to get stoned and hallucinating (?) an amateur superhero flying around downtown Calgary, where the film takes place.

Professionally ambitious but trod-upon Sandra (Marya Delver) has been assigned to keep an eye on her elderly kleptomaniac boss, which keeps her harried, high-strung and too busy in the mall to get any work done. Randy (Tobias Godson) escapes ennui by inventing animal nicknames for other worker-resident denizens, and Curt (Gordon Currie) is a cad who spends his time trying to get into the pants of an emotionally fragile co-worker.
