King of the heap

  • Comment

Office work - that dominant and unifying experience of the western world - is at last being taken seriously in popular culture. From the team who made Beavis & Butthead and King of the Hill, comes Office Space, 'a timely satire on corporate America', as one critic terms it. The plot revolves around a normal office worker whose behaviour, after deciding to drop out, leads to him being identified as 'senior management material'. As this epiphany stems from a growing obsession with a waitress (in a themed coffee bar), played by Jennifer Aniston, it probably has more to do with post-modernism than space planning.
