Memron was the greatest company in the world, until the bosses cooked the books and mugged everyone blind. Now the busted ceo rules the prison yard golf course, while a group of ex-employees struggle with the absurdities of starting over from nothing.
Re-confirming Christopher Guest as the most imitated American filmmaker by other American filmmakers, "Memron" is a flaccid mockumentary spoof of the Enron scandal and downsized workers desperate for work. Pic takes many cues from Guest's playbook -- from ensemble-style improv and quirky characters to the one-beat-too-long editing approach. Thesps have a knack for overdoing the mock-comedy, and narrative thread is nearly lost altogether by helmer Nancy Hower and co-writer Robert Hickey. Aud prize at Slamdance won't tweak pic's thin commercial options, but fest interest should be strong.
