Clockwatchers ★★★½

For most of its runtime, a brilliant meditation on the alienation of office life. But its ending leans a bit too heavily on the not particularly useful voiceover, deflating much of what came before. Or, looked at another way, the movie is a showcase for Parker Posey, who races mesmerizingly, and hilariously, on an edge between cynicism and hysteria throughout. At the moment where her character steps into the background of the film, a lot of momentum is lost.
