Critic Reviews of "Glengarry Glen Ross"ReelViewsJune 10, 2008
For anyone who loves sharp dialogue, compelling characters, and a stinging social rebuke, Glengarry Glen Ross is not to be missed.VarietyJune 09, 2008
Mamet reveals his exceptional talent for writing almost poetic working-class vernacular, scores his major implicit thematic thrusts against the nature of the way business-at-large is conducted.Time OutJune 24, 2006
David Mamet's play about the wheelings and dealings of real-estate salesmen gets dedicated playing from a splendid cast, but gains nothing by the transfer from stage to screen.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Foley is as adept at managing this intensely psychodramatic material as he is handling an ensemble cast with the combined power of a runaway locomotive.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
You can see the joy with which these actors get their teeth into these great lines, after living through movies in which flat dialogue serves only to advance the story.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Though the performances are satisfying in a projected way, they're nullified by an uninspired atmosphere around them. Despite the colorful and witty utterances of its characters, "Glengarry" feels artificial and rarefied.Antagony & EcstasyMarch 20, 2015
As an expression of a great script, it really can't be beat.HeyUGuysFebruary 05, 2013
Head of the direction duties, James Foley, strings it together well, making it harmonise like the musical piece it has succeeded to be.Ozus' World Movie ReviewsMarch 17, 2011
As you would expect from a Mamet play, the dialogue sizzles.Reel Film ReviewsJuly 06, 2010
...the most effective big-screen translation of a Mamet stage play.WJFK-FM (CBS Radio)August 25, 2008
The overall film, writing and acting are so darn good that I watched it and then immediately started it over again.EmanuelLevy.ComAugust 17, 2006
Mamet has a special gift for drawing portriats of lowlifers who are harsh but also funny, his salesmen are a far cry from Arthur Miller's Loman in Death of a Salesman.
