For all of [its] advantages, Glengarry Glen Ross is as hopelessly stagebound as any theatrical adaptation I've ever seen.

David Mamet's screenplay is brutal and snappy, and the cast is an acting connoisseur's dream

It is a testament to the power of Jack Lemmon's performance that it ranks as one of the most recognized of his accomplished career.

a film more concerned with the performances and how well lines are delivered than the abovementioned plot - And justifiably so with each of the gifted performers giving nothing but their best here. In addition, it's probably David Mamet's best screen effo

David Mamet's prophetic and soulful drama about how the human spirit is violated in the work arena.

Pacino, Lemmon, Harris, and Baldwin are masters of their craft, and Mamet's dynamite play rewards them accordingly.

All of the actors are great, clearly enjoying the opportunity to sink their teeth into some meaty lines.

Foley is as adept at managing this intensely psychodramatic material as he is handling an ensemble cast with the combined power of a runaway locomotive.

You can see the joy with which these actors get their teeth into these great lines, after living through movies in which flat dialogue serves only to advance the story.

Though the performances are satisfying in a projected way, they're nullified by an uninspired atmosphere around them. Despite the colorful and witty utterances of its characters, "Glengarry" feels artificial and rarefied.

Glengarry Glen Ross is interesting to watch like well-performed gymnastics but it never really connects.

The performers achieve a true ensemble rhythm; at times, the entire office seems like a single, shouting organism.
