The Method

4 out of 5 stars
The antisocial roots of corporate competitiveness get a darkly comic airing in this tight ensemble piece from Spain. The machinations of the candidates subjected to the titular HR mind-fuck reveal every sort of ladder-climbing aberration, but the contest’s string-pullers—and a Seattle-style antiglobalization rally outside—go pointedly unseen. The film loses some of its sting once the race narrows, but its outcome and the politically, emotionally astute fade-out are suitably devastating.
