Let’s just say this – the film adaptation of David Mamet‘s play Glengarry Glen Ross is totally badass. Featuring a cast of casts – Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, Kevin Spacey, Ed Harris  and Jack Lemmon (four Best Actor or Supporting Actor Oscar winners, all six actors having been nominated) – Glengarry Glen Ross is the expletive-laden story of a group of real estate salesmen and their plight as they are subjected to a sales contest in which the winner gets a car, second place gets a set of steak knives and the rest of them are fired.

I’m here from downtown. I’m here from Mitch & Murray, and I’m here on a mission of MERCY.

Alec Baldwin steals the show in this one with a part that was not in the play and written specifically for the movie. It may be one of the best scenes in ever. See for yourself:

This movie has it all – great acting, incredible Mamet-written dialogue, a robbery, intrigue, groveling and more expletives than you can shake a pair of brass balls at (even Al Pacino calls someone a C U Next Tuesday)…what more do you need? So why are you sitting there? Go watch it!

Glengarry Glen Ross is available for streaming through Netflix, Amazon and iTunes.

Here is the trailer:

 

If you take one thing from this movie, remember this: “A B C – Always be closing”
