Hoy d%uFFFDa, (...) una pieza como Edmond no resulta todo lo inquietante que deber%uFFFDa. Eso quiz%uFFFDs sea lo verdaderamente llamativo.

Is this about the nihilistic plight of the alienated, or just nihilistic? A coal-dark satire, or just needlessly dark? The uncomfortable Edmond asks more questions than it answers.
July 6, 2007
It plays like a low-cal Falling Down, with all the rage of Michael Douglas's office malcontent but none of his dark humour. Possibly the weakest thing Mamet has ever written.
July 6, 2007
It didn't work.
July 6, 2007
Edmond is a slight, self-consciously arty affair that starts off like a gloomy version of Falling Down before petering out with a deeply anti-climatic ending.
July 6, 2007
The Falling Down-meets-After Hours pitch and plum cast (William H Macy, Rebecca Pidgeon, Bai Ling, Mena Suvari) look tempting, but it's not a stretch to see why it's sat on the shelf for two years.

If it's a relic you're determined to catch at the movies this week, check out Edmond.
July 6, 2007
The great man lets rip with deafening flatulent macho nonsense in a truly awful movie, one of the very worst US pictures to be released here in years.
July 6, 2007
Macy is on top form and Mamet fans will savour the vicious barbs of repressed male rage but many will find this is a claustrophobic, stagey exercise without the wit and scope of Glengarry Glen Ross.
July 6, 2007
The director fails to breathe any sort of life into a piece practically carbon-dated by its flailing assaults on political correctness.
July 6, 2007
Be thankful it's not longer; at 80 minutes, one may still derive some perverse pleasure from the silliness of it all.
July 6, 2007
Whilst William H. Macy is as rewarding as ever, this has not transferred well from the stage.
July 6, 2007
Incredulity grabs you by the throat and doesn't let go.
February 1, 2007
William H. Macey (David Mamet regular) gives a moving performance as a desperate man, but the playwright's text is starchy with semi-academic dialogue, and is not helped by Gordon's direction.
December 20, 2006
None of it rings true for even a NYC second.
October 1, 2006
An intriguing, disquieting, but ultimately overdrawn nightmare.
September 29, 2006
Gordon's direction here lacks any subtlety, as does this bitter material.
September 23, 2006
Gordon can't quite get a handle on this odd material, and fails to moderate Macy's performance.
September 8, 2006
Even William H. Macy's raw, spare performance cannot save Edmond from distastefulness almost beyond imagination.
