Naturally Born Postal
4 January 2001 | by TolkaSee all my reviews

We as a society no longer have crusades, inquisitions, or rampaging melees of combat. So, instead, we go postal.

Postal Worker is interesting in that the entire mailing agency is portrayed as a simmering pot of twisted individuals. We get the notion that one such worker- Oren- is demented, but soon realize that the entire institution is a madhouse. Some would call the film an irresponsible carnography, but skillful subplotting and flashbacks weave a much more intricate-- and ultimately unnerving- tale of mayhem.

Over-the-top special effects are dominant-- and for good reason. The film takes us on an almost cartoon-like look at an admittedly morbidly fascinating topic. In some ways, it's like an indie version of Natural Born Killers but with an atmosphere that hits disturbingly closer to home.

Tolka's recommendation: Don't watch this one with a humanitarian/Spielberg/"Life is Beautiful" disposition. Instead, simply view it as a comical satire depicting America as a slaughtering madhouse.
