This Labor Day, as you kick back on a well-deserved day off, tune in for films featuring people who are actually doing some work. Beginning at 7am, catch “Pizza,” featuring a delivery boy who takes on the extra task of making an unpopular girl’s birthday worthwhile. Then, check out “Shattered Glass,” a true story about the dirty side of journalism, and “Rogue Trader,” with Ewan McGregor as a banker who tries to move up the ladder but ends up taking it down with him. You’ll never look at fast food the same after glimpsing what goes on behind the counter in “Fast Food Nation.” For a lesson in workplace etiquette, don’t miss “Office Space” or “Secretary,” which is about the kind of relationship you really shouldn’t have with your boss.
We’ve re-named the month of September “Sketchtember” here at IFC to help you get over the official end of summer. Every Saturday at midnight, check out some of the funniest, laugh-til-you-puke sketch comedy shows, including the “Whitest Kids U’Know,” “The Wrong Door,” “Modern Toss” and “The Jon Dore Television Show.”
Not to mention, “Ideal” continues in the Automat with a brand new season beginning September 29th. Get more Moz as he continues to grow and sell, er, special plants out of his flat, while trying to manage his quirky customers and even quirkier friends.
