Critics reviews

What I admire about the acting cannot be separated from the writing, in a way, because the rhythms of the dialogue are not uniform, contrary to the assumption that Mamet always writes in that staccato style. Pacino speaks in beautiful monologues, needing a mark like James Lingk only to throw a few words once in a while like gasoline to his rhetorical fire.

The underrated James Foley (After Dark, My Sweet) shows an excellent feeling for the driven and haunted jive rhythms of David Mamet, macho invective and all, in a superb 1992 delivery of his tour de force theater piece about desperate real estate salesmen, adapted for the screen by Mamet himself.
