  2. Ahhh, renting an apartment in New York City - tiny, 'challenging' spaces coupled with enormous rents are to be expected. The most eccentric of landlords...directly above you…with an itchy speed-dial finger? - perhaps not as common. Told almost entirely through voice mail messages, "One Year Lease" documents the travails of Brian, Thomas and Casper as they endure a year-long sentence with Rita the cat-loving landlady. Sometimes the calls not coming from INside the house, BUT from the apartment upstairs, can be just as scary…or, well, just downright bizarre.
