Both key actors find shades in the spiral of emotions that sucks the characters into darkness. Daniel Chung nails Dennis’ ability to radiate blankness through eyes that seem almost dead. Jackie Chung pivots through a spectrum of feelings and fears in a dizzying dance macabre. Still it’s hard to hold onto a sense of connection and coherence amid the carnage.

Or at least a feeling of questions desperate to be asked. But this “Office Hour” leaves us as uncertain as we are unsettled, the jolt of shots echoing in our ears.
