Call Center


78 minutes · 2017

This locally produced comedy generates good cheer through sympathetic characterizations and relatable workaday detail. The hero is a shy young cinephile who works as a manager for a customer-service call center and dreams of hosting his own radio show; his best friend, who also works at the center, is a wisecracking layabout who likes to chase the ladies. Their daily routine, filled with funny repartee, accounts for most of the film; writers Anton Deshawn and Kevin Douglas are less interested in telling a story than in conveying feelings of white-collar camaraderie and frustration. An office-intrigue subplot feels obligatory, but the filmmakers have the good sense not to devote too much time to it. Deshawn directed.
