Office Space

Flair. TPS reports. The red Swingline stapler. Mike Judge’s takeout on work in general, and the cube-farm culture of white-collar labor in particular, was so dead-on and scathing that it provided a whole new set of terms and concepts to mock and undermine them. Since it was famously a failure at the box office and only became beloved and ubiquitous on home video, this is a rare treat. -Lee Gardner
