Movie about a group of paranoid and angry real estate salesmen. A lot of dialog and cursing. A lot of angry guys shouting at each other. Jack Lemon is absolutely amazing. He carries the movie. One of my all time favorites.

Unbridled in profanity and filled to the brim with unadulterated masculinity, 'Glengarry Glen Ross' not only entertains but has enough depth to provoke contemplation for the audience. The cast features some of the best talent Hollywood has to offer, and each performance is as compelling as it is memorable, with mannerisms and dialogue sure to leave lasting impressions. The excessive use of long takes displays the unbelievable acting ability of this small but immensely talented cast. Director James Foley's auteur approach to the film immerses the viewer in the manipulation and ruthlessness of the characters. Each shot is framed superbly, and techniques such as zoom ins or camera pans perfectly complement the cadence and dialogue of the scene. 'Glengarry Glen Ross' is mesmerizing from the very first scene, and the appeal of the relatable struggles that the characters are faced with shows how far pride and competitive spirit will lead a man, when the aforementioned qualities are all a man has.

"Put that coffee down! Coffee's for closers only. You think I'm fucking with you?"

The superlative acting and writing carry this otherwise stagnating film.

Sizzling with the fury of many a fierce performance, this adaptation of David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize-winning play is an actor's dream assignment, howbeit its exclusive theatrical salesmenspeak.

One of the finest acted films I have ever seen. I love movies like this, because it doesn't rely on anything but straight dialogue and acting. A complete acting showcase from the entire cast.

Wow, what an all around perfect film. The performances are top notch, the script is as clever as any Quentin Tarantino film and the characters themselves are fascinating. You will be on the edge of your seat perplexing who could have stolen the leads. It is a very quick hour and 40 minutes, so hold on because it's a wild ride. All around not to be missed, unless you can't stand movies without sex, drugs and violence or don't like hearing constant strong profanity.

Living basically on the great performances of its actors and David Mamet's solid script, Glengarry Glen Ross is one clever and compelling take on the world of sales.

Glengarry Glen Ross is a masterclass in acting and dialogue.

Very entertaining, I was very pleasantly surprised!

Tough as nails and packing an all-star cast, "Glengarry Glen Ross" is an engrossing business drama of a most vicious kind.

Filmed claustrophobically, the film truly feels more like a play than movie and is packed with six fine performances with the late Jack Lemmon outshining them all. However, the film suffers by telling more often than it does showing plot.

A great film; arguably Alec Baldwin's best minutes on screen.
½ January 15, 2017
Excellent acting and well written dialogue but the limited plot development and static settings limit it.

A who's who of acting talent lead a fantastic David Mamet script in putting together a compelling story without a satisfying ending. There is a fantastic way to film interrogation scenes and then there is this. A brilliant switch to the ways things used to be done. Thank goodness for innovation.

Horribly tedious. Couldn't wait to get out of the theater. Some plays are better left as plays.
½ November 14, 2016
Alec Baldwin's scene isn't as powerful as it once was with the multiple homages. It's a classic though and well worth a watch

Great adaptation with fantastic actors portraying that characters. A.

Loved this film. Great punchy and visceral screenplay and dialogue, though that's hardly surprising considering it's a play by David Mamet. All the actors play their reapective roles superbly, but for me Jack Lemon steals the show with outstanding performance as Shelley "The Machine Levens". It's dramatic, it's funny, and above all depressingly reastic, I could only imagine. Just watch it, I doubt you'll regret it. 5/5
September 13, 2016
Fantastic performances (especially from Lemmon) make for a cynical, witty drama.
