Secretary (2002), Steven Shainberg ★★★★

Maggie Gyllenhaal channeling Tyler Durden – You’re not your job. From the chin stapling to pulling the typed sheet from the typewriter with her mouth, Maggie epitomizes Colonel Saito’s advice to the POWs: be happy in your work. It all comes down to the question posed by Mrs. Jones, the old woman living alone in the woods in M. Night Shyamalan’s The Happening: Who’s chasing who? Ain’t no time two people staring at each other, or standing still…, loving both with their eyes are equal. Truth is, someone is chasing someone. That’s the way we’s built.

I always hit the audio button to check for a commentary, and notice this one has the writer and director. If the star ranking is reevaluated upon a second viewing, it will be up.
