Our Recent Raves series returns for 2016 with a special Seattle 3D Premiere! Master Hong Kong director Johnnie To (Drug War) and star Chow Yun-Fat take on the world of high-level corporate intrigue - in the form of an eye-popping 3D musical. Adapted from co-star Sylvia Chang’s hit stage play “Design for Living”, Office cleverly combines stylized musical numbers and stunning abstract sets (designed by Wong Kar-wai’s production designer William Chang) to create a timely critique of corporate capitalism.
