Extract (2009, dir. Mike Judge)

A food additive factory owner’s life spirals out of control. Low-key comedy with thriller elements – Coen lite in some ways – that really works if you let its ambient approach take you. A great cast on decent form helps. Not Judge’s best work, but enjoyable nevertheless.

Here’s the trailer.
