Product Description

Pacino/Lemmon/Baldwin/Harris/Arkin/Spacey/Butler ~ Glengarry Glenross (1992)

Amazon.ca

Like moths to a flame, great actors gravitate to the singular genius of playwright-screenwriter David Mamet, who updated his Pulitzer Prize-winning play for this all-star screen adaptation. The material is not inherently cinematic, so the movie's greatest asset is Mamet's peerless dialogue and the assembly of a once-in-a-lifetime cast led by Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, and Alec Baldwin (the last in a role Mamet created especially for the film). Often regarded as a critique of the Reagan administration's impact on the American economy, the play and film focus on a competitive group of real estate salesmen who've gone from feast to famine in a market gone cold. When an executive "motivator" (Alec Baldwin) demands a sales contest among the agents in the cramped office, the stakes are critically high: any agent who fails to meet his quota of sales "leads" (i.e., potential buyers) will lose his job. This intense ultimatum is a boon for the office superstar (Pacino), but a once-successful salesman (Lemmon) now finds himself clinging nervously to faded glory. Political and personal rivalries erupt under pressure when the other agents (Alan Arkin, Ed Harris) suspect the office manager (Kevin Spacey) of foul play. This cauldron of anxiety, tension, and sheer desperation provides fertile soil for Mamet's scathingly rich dialogue, which is like rocket fuel for some of the greatest actors of our time. Pacino won an Oscar nomination for his volatile performance, but it's Lemmon who's the standout, doing some of the best work of his distinguished career. Director James Foley shapes Mamet's play into a stylish, intensely focused film that will stand for decades as a testament to its brilliant writer and cast. --Jeff Shannon --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Most people think of explosions, car chases and action/adventure films as guy movies. Well, maybe, but those are for boys. There's no car chase in this movie, no deaths and no guns. But it manages to hold your attention while telling its story of real estate salesmen. This is the quintessential guy movie. This screen adaptation of David Mamet's Pulitzer-winning play is incredibly stagebound, which was a stroke of genius: thus, the fast-paced dialogue and the desperate, macho facades of the characters become, and stay, the focus. This allows the amazing talents of the cast to flourish. Pacino and Lemmon are untouchable. Ed Harris is outstanding. Having just the four main characters makes the whole thing seem oddly forced at times. Baldwin's slick delivery of his ball-busting speech to the three underachieving salesmen, is a scene to remember. Highly recommended.

Format: DVD
This movie has been brought to my attention several days ago and thought I give it a "look-see" At first, it's confusing for some minutes until you figure out the real estate lingo, but once you get past the ordinary phrases used by the businessmen, you love it. Basically the movie takes place in a real estate company on its last leg. During the night, someone breaks into the building to steal the Glengarry Leads. The good leads.

This movie kept my attention greatly and Lemmon as Shelly gives an emotional and stirring performance. His facial expressions and his movements add to the whole effect of his character and it showed he could still act in major motion pictures. Arkin as George may have the hardest character to play as he plays a shaky and often on-his-toes salesmen, a good performance. Harris as Moss gets to do most of the screaming in the movie and that's always easy for Harris, he always does a good job. Baldwin as Blake has a short scene but makes an impact and it lasts. You just listen and stay attentive when Baldwin is speaking. It's that good. Spacey as Williamson has to play an embarrassed and often ridiculed office manager but Spacey's performances are always electric.

Finally, the Oscar nominated performance of Al Pacino as Ricky Roma is quite possibly my favorite movie character ever. Pacino's usual swagger is there but this time it's there with an attitude. His screen impact is matched by no one in this movie and you'll love this character. With the exception of possibly Serpico, this is Pacino's best performance of his career and should've won the Oscar and probably would've if he didn't win for Best Actor that year.

Six desperate men, one week to keep their jobs by closing more leads for Premier Properties. The new and lucrative Glengarry leads are only available to closers. But all six guys need their jobs. So who robbed the Glengarry leads?
That's the plot. Those that think it sounds dissapointing haven't seen the film yet, and those that think it sounds intruiging don't know how right they are! This is a great film; It has to be - it is from David Mamet's pullitzer prize winning play.
Basically the film takes place over a two day period - the office is robbed halfway through and all we, the viewers, know is that there were several guys who would have done it. But who? While the film was a play first, there are a whole lot of monologues and dialogues and that is how the action takes place. And you've not lived untill you've seen dialogue between Jack Lemmon and Al Pacino!
The only warning I can give is that those who don't like David Mamet (and it seems you either love him or hate him) will not like this film, though it is more accessible, say, then Oleanna. Those who get bored watching plays because of all talk and no 'real' action probably won't like this film either.
Those who remain intrigued by how 6 characters in a film can create so much tension, drama, and fulness, get this film. You will not regret it one bit.

If you're looking for car crashes, gun fights and naked people you won't find them here. But if great dialogue and raw emotion hold your interest, it doesn't get any better than this. Every one of these guys should have won an award for their roles in this movie. Not sure if this particular DVD contains the interview with Jack Lemmon that was included after one of the cable TV broadcasts of the film. If not, it should!

After hearing rave reviews of this movie for the last couple of years, I finally rented it. After nearly two hours of absolutely nothing, other than a good line or two from Al Pacino, it was over. I honestly wondered if I fell asleep and missed something. What a disappointment.
This film starts very strong with a great five minute performance from Alec Baldwin. He makes you believe you have just sat down to witness true perfection. He reminds the salesmen to "Always Be Closing" (ABC). He then tells them of a competition. The top sales person gets a car, second place gets a set of steak knives and the third gets fired. There is no room for losers in this dramatically masculine world; only "closers" will get the good sales leads. There is a lot of pressure to succeed, so a robbery is committed which has unforseen consequences for all the characters. Jack Lemmon and Al Pacino in particular are incredible, they play off each other so well. This movie is not far from reality. Many salespeople (myself included) who work in the "boiler room" often end up burnt out, divorced, and wasted.
