If OFFICE KILLER were as good as Carol Kane, it would be CITIZEN KANE (pun intended). But instead, it's just quite a lot of fun, as Kane plays mousy worker Dorine who snaps after she accidentally kills one of the assholes in her office. Not that Dorine was all that well adjusted before, having caused the crippling of her mother (Alice Drummond) and the death of her lecherous father (Eric Bogosian, oozing sleaze).
She proceeds to go after others in the office and her life and make life hell for Kim (Molly Ringwald), who is the only one that sees she's a bit of a maniac. Still, it's hard as OFFICE KILLER progresses to not like Dorine better. Kane is just that good, walking an eccentric line between kooky and menacing. Director Cindy Sherman has fun with the material, too (with dialogue by Todd Haynes!), giving into the gory, dark comedy of it all.
