Glengarry Glen Ross Blu-ray review.

Glengarry Glen Ross Blu-ray review.
When moving something from the stage it can be risky. The stage gives a more focused view with small sets that can bring the intimacy to the piece that makes it successful, when moving it to the screen, the idea of the intimacy can get lost and the sets can become massive. The 1992 film of Glengarry Glen Ross kept its smaller sets with the small telephone boxes these salesmen use to simulate their jet-setting ways. David Mamet’s dialogue is plain, direct and simple but uttered quickly and repetitively that it’s a delight to hear such free-flowing words. Films have become accustomed to using dialogue to only hint towards the story or push it further along. Where we’re told about why this person is the biggest bastard around and all of his indiscretions to sum him up in a montage. This dialogue here is to get an insight into the characters, into their habits, into their emotions, their deviations, into them.
