David Mamet United States, 2004

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Spartan

How to put together the framework of a thriller and themes that haunt every classic Greek tragedies like Exile and Disguise (Did you notice how many times Val Kilmer changes clothes here) for instance, that's the lesson David Mamet teaches us in Spartan. Sometimes it is working, sometimes it isn't. Recommended though.
