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.

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

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.

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

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