Cup of Joe

A quirky workplace comedy with a caffeinated twist.
4/5

Review

‘Cup of Joe’ is a delightful romp through the absurdities of office life, brought to life by Max Hofer’s quirky comedic style. At the heart of the film is Joe, our affable protagonist, whose simple act of distributing coffee becomes a window into the workplace. Each scene in is not only infused with humor but also carries a mysterious element, adding an extra layer of intrigue to the narrative.

What makes this short film truly shine is its ability to blend satire with relatability. Through Joe’s speechless interactions with his colleagues, we are treated to an array of fruitful characters. Hofer’s script is sharp and witty, keeping the audience engaged throughout. Taylor Yocum’s cinematography effortlessly captures the energy of the office environment, weaving through the bustling corridors with fluidity and style.

Without giving away any spoilers, it’s safe to say that the comedy takes an unexpected turn with the introduction of Kyle, leading to a climax that is as unpredictable as it is hilarious. A refreshing and entertaining take on the everyday absurdities of office life.
