The Assistant ★★★★

When he—and he is never named, only referred to as “he” or “him”—passes by Jane’s desk, we don’t see his face, but we can hear him mumbling orders to the underling executives surrounding him. He doesn’t speak to Jane (Julia Garner) or even acknowledge her, yet she stiffens as he approaches and even flinches at one point. Is this normal nervousness when the boss is around, or a sign that something more is amiss?
