The Corner Parking Lot in Charlottesville, between the University Of Virginia and a cluster of rowdy bars, is staffed by a loyal army of ‘insanely over-educated’ parking attendants who love their job with the same passion that they hate their customers. This slight but entertaining documentary follows their crusade against frat boys in daddy’s car, tight-wad SUV owners and people who can’t park straight. In downtime they ponder the existential implications of the job, but are then seen throwing rocks at drivers who zoom off without paying. The parking lot could be seen as a microcosm of American society, or simply where a bunch of grad students earn a buck while venting their frustrations. Either way, it’s a fun place to hang out.
