Diamond Men (2001)
Critic Consensus: Robert Forster's tour-de-force performance, along with Daniel M. Cohen's sensitive direction and subtly shaded screenplay, brings rare heft to this mentor/protégé buddy film.

Critic Reviews for Diamond Men
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.'
Delightful, low-key comedy.
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.
Audience Reviews for Diamond Men
Robert Forster's subtle "nice guy" performance in "Diamond Men" is one of the main reasons to watch the film, if not the only reason. Donnie Wahlberg is likable in his supporting role and the script offers some fine twists, but there is nothing here that engages or involves viewer. Cohen's direction and script hold up for the most part, but neither is very solid.
A little uneven in tone and pace, but made largely enjoyable by a well written script and Robert Forster.
A very small film but a sweet one, an easygoing venture of the feel-good variety. What sets it apart is something even larger pictures often lack: an excellent performance by its star.
