The office atmosphere is one completely of its own, and All Sorts highlights a hyperreal version. Anyone who has worked in a traditional office space knows the dynamics and relationships you build there are unlike anywhere else. And this new quirky comedy makes light of every aspect of the office atmosphere, coworkers and even a world of speed filing competitions
When Diego takes a position as a data clerk in an office, he’s tossed into an office unlike any other. The technology is about twenty years old, there’s a special drawer you can “pay” a coworker with candy bars to do your work or to get you a computer, someone that lives in the air vents and there’s even an underground fight club style competition of filers. But all that aside, Diego has one constant – his coworker June that he has become infatuated with.
It’s hard to describe the movie since, at times, nothing makes sense. But it’s definitely a movie that people will relate to with some of the weird and odd things that happen only in offices – even if in the film it’s a lot more extreme than reality. With moments that will make you laugh and others that will make you wonder just what you are watching- All Sorts is a movie that you may have to revisit to completely understand and enjoy.
As goofy and non-sensical All Sorts is, the movie is actually entertaining. While it pushes the mundane to the extreme, it’s worth watching and will most likely find a cult following like other similar films. At this time it doesn’t seem like All Sorts will be having a theatrical release other than the premier it had at the Maple theater, but it will be available on demand later this fall.
