Clockwatchers ★★★★½

I only checked this out because I wanted to see some movies with Parker Posey. I'm really glad I did. It's a really precise and realistic low-key dramedy that focuses on the camaraderie at a soul-crushing office. It comments on power dynamics influenced by the fact they are all women with few rights and how the system they are in passively and actively discourages their individuality, but we also get to know at least three of the characters really well and the story is firmly on their side. Also, I didn't really expect it, but this made beautiful use of the 4:3 ratio, proving that a seemingly narrow ratio can actually have a lot of versatility.
