Head of the direction duties, James Foley, strings it together well, making it harmonise like the musical piece it has succeeded to be.
| Original Score: 4.5/5
As you would expect from a Mamet play, the dialogue sizzles.
| Original Score: A-
...the most effective big-screen translation of a Mamet stage play.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The overall film, writing and acting are so darn good that I watched it and then immediately started it over again.
| Original Score: 5/5
For anyone who loves sharp dialogue, compelling characters, and a stinging social rebuke, Glengarry Glen Ross is not to be missed.
| Original Score: 4/4
Mamet reveals his exceptional talent for writing almost poetic working-class vernacular, scores his major implicit thematic thrusts against the nature of the way business-at-large is conducted.
Mamet has a special gift for drawing portriats of lowlifers who are harsh but also funny, his salesmen are a far cry from Arthur Miller's Loman in Death of a Salesman.
| Original Score: 4/5
David Mamet's play about the wheelings and dealings of real-estate salesmen gets dedicated playing from a splendid cast, but gains nothing by the transfer from stage to screen.
This brilliant, gutsy film features a nervy script by David Mamet and career-topping performances by Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, Kevin Spacey, Jonathan Pryce and Alec Baldwin.
As fierce as it is funny. Rarely does does a film sustain such a fever pitch of dramatic intensity. One of the very best of 1992.
Words fly with the speed and impact of bullets.
As cynical as they come. But witty and clever.
| Original Score: 3/5
Despite an acidic world-view, it generates a real feeling of the worth of artistic achievement and personal struggle.
| Original Score: 93/100
Um estudo de personagens maravilhoso que se torna ainda mais eficaz graças ao forte roteiro do mestre Mamet e às performances de um elenco admirável.
A sharp look at the surreal world of real estate sales.
The acting is as good as it gets. A wonderful film!
The directing's a bit obtrusive, but the script and the acting gets to the heart of Mamet's glorious obsession with macho B.S.
| Original Score: 4/5
One of the great American movies.
| Original Score: A
Brilliantly acted and written, it's one of the best ensemble pieces of its particular decade.
Five truly great actors in a rare film that fully justifies their talents.
