    Mamet -- crafts tangy, well-seasoned dialogue that a good cast can feast on. And this cast is prime. show more

    Even a mediocre David Mamet movie is still a David Mamet movie. That means there are lines to savor, partly because the lines are so good, partly because they are so Mamet. show more

    Passable but never exciting, Heist is on a level with those minor Burt Lancaster action pics the actor's name helped bankroll in the '70s. show more
