movie review - The Haiku Tunnel

the journal of Michael Werneburg

twenty-seven years and one million words

Vancouver, 2002.07.26

This is a movie about a temp named Josh who's a wannabe novelist and a bit of a fuckup. And the 17 letters that he tries, tries, and tries to get out the door. It's clear that the writer/star/director actually has served as a temp, because this feels just far too eerily true. It's got some hysterically funny moments and some cringingly painful stretches, and is definitely worth watching.

Recommended.
