Mike Judge's "Extract"
Few people capture the mundane characteristics of every day life quite like Mike Judge. It took me a couple of years to learn to appreciate the man (I thought Beavis & Butthead was annoying when it first aired and it took me a few seasons to warm to King of the Hill) but I think the guy nails it in his live-action work. Office Space & Idiocracy were both instant classics for me and while they may have had their flaws, they really did influence my daily world view, as ridiculous as that might sound.
Anyway, I'm looking forward to his next feature. It looks fantastic.
