  1. Have you done a rating of David Mamet movies? Guess they should be divided between those he wrote, and those he wrote and directed. I’d love your take on them. Cheers

  2. Glengarry Glen Ross is a movie that has stayed with me more than any other I can think of, to the point that when I’m feeling hopeless, desperate, and misused, my colleagues have known me to cry out in anguish, “I’m Jack Lemmon in Glengarry Glen Ross!” Very powerful movie and probably the most depressing I’ve ever seen. It was painful to watch.

      It really is incredibly depressing. When you think about it, there’s literally no light at the end of the tunnel for any of the characters!

    Nice review! I remember seeing this while I was in high school; can’t remember it very well, now, though.

    I hadn’t thought about it for ages, but just last week Glengarry Glen Ross showed up in an article I read (http://tinyurl.com/yaq9zch3), which mentioned that Alec Baldwin’s character was actually added to the film, and doesn’t exist in the original play! I’ll have to rewatch it, sometime.

      That’s a fun little fact I wasn’t aware of. It’s nice when you have a smart creative team that expands upon source material to make it more cinematic in feel!
