How does one even begin to levy words for or against David Mamet’s welding torch of a play Glengarry Glen Ross? It’s such an expertly-worded piece of literature, any thing I could come up with in response would feel lifeless in comparison. So I’m going to back down. I’m going to let A.O. Scott, Chief Film Critic for the New York Times, speak instead. His assessment of the 1992 film-adaptation directed by James Foley says it all.
Also worth sharing is this eight minute clip, in which Alec Baldwin spits fire at his subordinates. Be warned, his language is very choice.
I should also mention that the image at the top of this post is by an artist named Sam Weber. More by him may be seen at Gallery Nucleus (http://www.gallerynucleus.com/detail/11479).
Best of luck to all as the term nears an end.
