Office Killer, the only film by Cindy Sherman, one of the twentieth century's most significant artists, has failed to be critically examined. Dahlia Schweitzer explores the film on a variety of levels, arguing that it is only through a close reading of the film that we can begin to appreciate the messages underlying all of Sherman's work.
