Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)
Adapted from his Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross shows David Mamet at his searing, profane best. A group of Chicago real-estate salesmen-cum-con artists live on the edge. Life is good for the one on a roll. For the rest, life hangs in the balance. There is no room for losers. A-B-C: Always Be Closing, sell or go under, is the salesman's mantra. With the pressure on, so begins a rainy night of cutthroat business and shattered lives. Delivering an Academy Award-nominated performance, Al Pacino (Scent Of A Woman), plays the fast-talking Ricky Roma, alongside Jack Lemmon (Mister Roberts, Save The Tiger) giving a phenomenal performance as the veteran Shelley “The Machine” Levene, struggling to keep his neck above water.
- " Clearly some of the best work that the likes of Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin, and even the great Jack Lemmon, have ever done. " – PJ Nabarro (Patrick Nabarro)
- " While the dark view of human nature and brutal dialogue might keep faint hearts from the film, the cast manages to individualize and humanize the pugilistic wordplay so that its expressiveness never veers into offensiveness. " – Henry Sheehan (Hollywood Reporter)
- " Head of the direction duties, James Foley, strings it together well, making it harmonise like the musical piece it has succeeded to be. " – Ashley Norris (HeyUGuys)
