  • Mamet's dialogue has a kind of logic, a cadence, that allows people to arrive in triumph at the ends of sentences we could not possibly have imagined. There is great energy in it. You can see the joy with which these actors get their teeth into these great lines. show more

  • The pleasure of this unique film comes in watching superb actors dine on Mamet's pungent language like the feast it is. show more

  • It's blackly comic - though the humour creeps up on you slowly, and you're seldom sure if you should really be laughing. show more
