|Topic:||in terms of David Mamet|
Mamet has a genius for language... its pace, rhythms, the way that it reveals and obscures...|
His worldview if darkly illuminating, imagine a black light that causes underlying substances to glow and reveal their presence...
Essential viewing for the student of communication skills...
Glengarry Glen Ross, with Alec Baldwin as the trainer from Hell... based on a real trainer who worked for Fernando Flores... a sobering cautionary tale...
The Spanish Prisoner... marvellous nuanced look at congruity and incongruity, illusion and reality, Steve Martin flexes his stuff here
Oleanna... the intersection of language, intentionality, and self definition...
Best seen one day apart.
