Critic Reviews for Oleanna
Overly schematic and the least effective screen adaptation of a David Mamet play.
...feels like it was made in a rush, on the cheap, and to fulfill a contractual obligation.... a disappointment compared to his House of Games or Heist, which at least possessed the fall-back position of being intermittently entertaining.
Mamet's most frustrating movie
the film tried a little too hard to make the audience squirm -- but it also forced me to think.
Audience Reviews for Oleanna
A little slow in the beginning and it takes some effort to get info artificial dialogue (David Mamet's trademark), but once you do, it's a gripping drama that ratchets up the intensity as it goes along, despite minimalist setting.
An interesting movie.
A compelling, elocuent, dialogue-driven, unpretentious, well made two characters drama. Mamet's prose really works.
