The Method

This mordant corporate drama from Spain (2005) comes across like an episode of The Apprentice scripted by Neil LaBute. Seven candidates competing for an unspecified executive position undergo a battery of increasingly cruel and arcane tests apparently designed to suss out their leadership, team-player skills, and predatory instincts. Once eliminated, they're ignominiously shown the door, their computers shutting off before they've exited the room. Argentinean director Marcelo PiƱeyro smartly underplays the inherent tension among the candidates, though he and screenwriter Mateo Gil, adapting a play by Jordi Galceran Ferrer, fail to transcend the story's more theatrical aspects. In Spanish with subtitles. 115 min.
