    Love the colors and rich texture of film. And the vintage decor. It is a pretty cool movie.

    I've been sick and watched a bunch of dumb movies on TVclip. Couldn't even finish many of them.
    This was one of the better ones.
    Just weird enough to hold my interest, although, to be honest, I have no idea why they waited so damned long to call the cops.

    This film version, IMO, misses the whole point of the short story. Even though it has been decades since I read it, I remember that it was subtitled "A Tale of Wall Street" for a reason. Think of the 2008 housing crisis and a gentle soul trying to survive in the banking world of robo-signing, foreclosures , bankers gambling with derivatives etc, and watch a lowly clerk with a conscience being told just to do his job. Just file the paperwork, Bartleby. Just type up the foreclosures. Just push the derivatives off on some unsuspecting buyer. Such a person might have a difficult time functioning in such a rat race, but to speak out is to risk job loss and homelessness himself. Mice have been subjected to cruel experimentation where no matter the choice they make, they are given an electric shock. Eventually, the mice become incapable of action and squat down and remain motionless. Bartleby, like the mice, finding his immersion into Wall Street's inhumanity intolerable, finally becomes incapable of action and just says, "I prefer not to" and squats in his office as his last existential act of rebellion against the system as he gradually escapes into mental illness.

    Bartleby's boss is also intriguing. He is a reasonable man who has feelings, but thinks that all things should be done in order, according to his middle-class view of the world. Deep down, I think he recognizes why Bartleby is doing what he is doing, but to acknowledge it lies the way of madness. He must deny the "reasonableness" of Bartleby's actions. Today, that boss might keep his sanity by asking "is it legal?" I've heard many an MBA ask that question regarding some morally questionable action they are about to take. As long as it is legal or not likely to be prosecuted, they think it must be ok. Let the buyer beware.

    The story is as relevant today as it was when Melville wrote it. The finance economy keeps destroying lives with the "boom/bust" cycle of finance, bubbles (real estate, student loan debt, derivatives). People get rich off of the misery of others, It is a system that knows the price of everything and the value of nothing. For a little short story, Melville's characters can take you as deeply as you want to go in understanding how people function in a dog-eat-dog economic system, how some justify and keep their sanity and how others lose theirs by preferring not to be a part of it, but with no visible means of escape except, perhaps, into mental illness, job loss and/or poverty. Our homeless population may very well reflect many of those, "who preferred not to."

    A very wierd, sadly realish movie. Serious mental illness, maybe Autism. Mental Health Case Mgmt, is this frustrating. Many clients don't improve, relapse, get arrested & hospitalized, end up on aid, homeless.

    I for one like pushing the envelope and living by my wits sometime , breaking the chains of the conventional. But this was something all together beyond the beyond , and I get it. But its about shooting the thrill , jump from the plane before it crashes , for me life is an action film not a damn tragedy.

    This is very deep , it speaks to all of us who would prefer not to do what we need to do like maintaining an income and take advantage of opportunities that will keep us from becoming homeless and dying on the street. To me this isn't surreal , its actually the way life really is. The phrase ,"I prefer not to ", is the catch phrase for those who have given up on the reality ,doing what it takes to maintain theyre position in the rat race.
    There is also those who decide to make choices that aid they're own downfall. This film was a lesson and a cautionary tale for those who cant see when they should choose to do something , this is called opportunity . We all have problems with timing , thus the expression , WAS IT AN IDEA WHOS TIME HAD COME , OR DID IT SEEM LIKE A GOOD IDEA AT THE TIME. --- Pere ubu.

      I watched the movie becsuse of your comment. I'm thinking this character had what used to be labeled as High Functioning Autism, or Aspergers Syndrome. Or, some mental illness like Major Depressive Disorder. Shows signs of reality testing issues. But, ultimately your analysis is fitting. Thanks.

    comedy...wouldn't move this slow-guess the term morality-play isn't PC enuf?..Kick ass casting!kept thinking pdoWOODYALLEN could have helped this attempt?comdy needs a genre-slapstick,linguistic,character driven(close to this..)but...there must be stronger sub-currents?something more torail(bounce off of?) against than apathy?with this cast??? I expected more? I lean towards writters and direction-the camera angles were allover the place forwhateffect??

    Thank for the quirky movie Popcornflix, Entertaining!
    Was that Dick Martin from "Laugh In" in the begining?
    The guy playing Bartleby is the "Thin Man" from the "Charlie's Angels" movies!
