'The Boss of it All': Light-hearted for von Trier

Maui Time | June 11, 2007
Lars Von Trier takes a break from his trademark approach to polemics to induce snide laughs with a light-hearted, at least light-hearted for Von Trier, office satire about an actor hired by an IT company CEO to pose as its President in order to sell off the company. Jens Albinius is hilariously deadpan as a pretentious actor caught in a world he can only appear to fathom. At ten minutes too long, The Boss of It All is Lars Von Trier poking fun at himself and the corporate veil that mystifies all those that attempt to defeat it. (In Dutch with English subtitles).

Not Rated, 96 mins. (C+)
