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.
As to be expected, the Mamet-speak is sharp, witty and masterful.
the film tried a little too hard to make the audience squirm -- but it also forced me to think.
Audience Reviews for Oleanna
An interesting movie.
A compelling, elocuent, dialogue-driven, unpretentious, well made two characters drama. Mamet's prose really works.
A tad dry on screen. would have been interesting to see how a different director would have handled it - maybe emphasised the sensual experiences. Read the play. Good performance fom William H. Macy
