5 David Mamet's Best Workglengarryglenross | 16/05/2007 | See all glengarryglenross's reviews (26)Top 100 DVD Reviewer With a script to die for and a director's wet dream of a cast, James Foley turns David Mamet's Pulitzer Prize winning play into an unimaginably tremendous film. It is essentially a bunch of guys talking rubbish and trying to sell real estate to deadbeats, think 'Death of a Salesman' only much more angry and mean spirited. It's about the failing American dream and the people out of it's grasp. As tragic as it is funny, Alec Baldwin's 8 minute cameo in which he tears the entire room apart with a verbal assault the likes of which has never been seen again (until Al Pacino does it to Kevin Spacey later in the film) must go down in history as one of the greatest scenes ever committed to film. Top class performances from a top class cast. This movie is so good I used it as a screen name.
