David Brent: Life on the road
I recently reviewed Ricky Gervais's latest film, David Brent: Life on the road for Australian Book Review's Arts Update. This is my first published film review for a national publication. you can read it here:
The Office is my favourite television comedy of all time, and I've been revisiting it regularly ever since I first watched it about ten years ago ... so, naturally, I struggled to write this review. I mean, where do I start with ten years of obsessive fandom, and an encyclopaedic knowledge of Ricky Gervais's career? How do I then decant all that into a 1,000-word review of a largely OK film? It's not easy, folks, but I gave it a crack.
