The movie is warmed by a fine sense of place and the lovingly elaborated detail of the salesman's life.

Wahlberg looks like a rising star, while the seasoned Forster manifests his usual sober authority and approachable masculinity.

Sacrificing excellent characters to an ultimately lame payoff, Diamond Men's potential as a diamond in the rough turn out to be more 'rough' than 'diamond.'

Pacing and story problems aside, this is as fine a showcase for Forster, Armstrong and Wahlberg as they could want, a real actor's picture.

Cohen obviously knows the dealings and dangers of the diamond trade, but instead of creating an interesting study of that world, he prefers to venture into the obvious and ridiculous.

Watching Diamond Men, it's easy to see what the fuss about Forster is about.

Cohen, who has been in the diamond business, has directed with a sure, non-wasteful hand and with touching empathy for both men.

The kind of keenly observed, artfully crafted, warmly humane movie that keeps us going through the weekly helping of big-screen duds.

Cohen doesn't fall into the Mamet trap of equating crafty salesmanship with macho flim-flam.

As with so many other recent indie films he has appeared in, it is Forster who truly shines.

Cohen pours on schmaltz straight out of the similarly themed Diamonds.

It provides a charming showcase for an actor [Forster] whose lack of stardom will never be adequately explained.

After watching [Forster's] subtle, touching performance in this movie, you'll think that being over 50 is just about the coolest thing in the world.
