In 1997, the film Office Killer was released to the public. Cindy Sherman, of photographic fame, had directed the film as her first foray into the world of cinema. The film was ultimately received negatively publicly and critically with many critics criticizing that the film had none of the artistic direction that Sherman’s photographs displayed. This paper reexamines the film in the context of the critical theory written by Laura Mulvey and Mary Ann Doane about her photographic series Untitled Film Stills, Disasters, and Fairy Tales, reconsidering its merits in line with Sherman’s larger oeuvre.
