It's disturbing and challenging and will worry away at you... But, that said, it is its own genre, is peculiarly riveting, and is only 87 minutes.

"Edmond" is beyond black comedy, it's a comedy in almost total stygian darkness. A comedy where the laughs make you cough up razor blades.

Edmond is presented as the cold truth, but it's really just the truth of how the masculinist Mamet feels.
July 10, 2007
David Mamet's genius as a weaver of words and observer of human interaction is put on full display here ....

This is a small film with a big payback, like a series of tableaux that illustrate how a mildmannered Mr Everyman can become viciously untamed.

This is not an easy watch, but it is awfully honest art.

Começando com a promessa de se revelar um novo Um Dia de Fúria ("Uma Noite...", neste caso), o filme jamais alcança a intensidade esperada e se enfraquece ainda mais em seu terceiro ato desajeitadamente satírico. Mas Macy está genial.

Quintessential David Mamet: brainy, playful, engaging.

It's not exactly a "happy" movie, but it sure is a fascinating one.
November 11, 2006
Every moment of Edmond is extraordinary.
October 13, 2006
...a powerful film, but not a completely coherent one.

Edmond is a failure as a story, but it's such a provocative and involving failure that it's worth a peek or two.

...Gordon brings this hellish and funny look at one man's freefall into his basest instincts just the right touch of reality viewed through fun house mirrors.
September 1, 2006
The last handful of scenes, featuring Bokeem Woodbine as an acquaintance of Edmond's, are worth the price of a ticket.
August 26, 2006
A consistently stimulating viewing experience.
August 25, 2006
It's a wordy script and, in its own profane way, a beautiful one, but it's the words that aren't said that are the most crucial.
August 17, 2006
A sex- and violence-filled romp that sprays David Mamet's staccato dialogue like rubber bullets over the audience.
August 11, 2006
Mamet's script may not be entirely convincing as either satire or social commentary, but in Macy's hands, poor, pathetic Edmond's story finds its shocking, darkly funny resonance.
August 10, 2006
Go, by all means, but be prepared to take a beating.
August 1, 2006
Under Gordon's eye, Macy draws pity for a character who feels nothing beyond his own suffering.
