  • You may want to revisit this profanely hilarious Hollywood satire. . .just to catch the zingers the audience often drowns out with laughter. Hollywood corrupts absolutely, and Mamet turns the toxic process into the year's best and smartest comedy. show more

  • His (Mamet) direction is unobtrusive, unflashy, and always willing to allow the hilarious cast all the room it needs. show more

  • For all its wit and sharp casting, State and Main is way too pleased with itself to be funny or endearing. show more
