Bartleby

Bartleby

Available on Prime Video
This faithful adaptation of Herman Melville's classic follows a young accounting clerk in 1970's London rebelling against his employer by responding to demands to do work by saying "I prefer not to." This is carried on ad absurdum until the office is in chaos and the other employees must do Bartleby's work. His boss is unable to bring himself to fire Bartleby, which is the crux of the film.
