#tbt Glengarry Glen Ross review

Great dialogue, good acting, and Al Pacino. What more could you want from a movie. Not that much. For today's Throwback Thursday review I have decided to do the 1992 drama Glengarry Glen Ross, based on  the play by David Mamet with a screenplay by him too. The film is about a bunch of salesmen at a real estate office having a tough time selling pieces of land, because the leads they are getting are very bad. Everyone seems to have an impossible time of selling except for Ricky Roma, (Al Pacino) the top salesman. Soon some workers get the idea to rob the office and steal the "good" leads. Panic and great acting ensues. So, this movie is pretty star studded. It has such big names as Kevin Spacey, Alan Arkin, Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, and an awesome, but very small, part by Alec Baldwin. So if you want a movie like that, choose this one. Al Pacino got an Oscar nomination for his role as the salesman and he certainly deserved it. Now I haven't ever seen the play so I really can't compare but if it was anything like the film, it was great. Happy Throwback Thursday and as always, Happy Viewing.
