Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)

Category: Entertainment
Times are tough in a New York real-estate office; the salesmen (Shelley Levene, Ricky Roma, Dave Moss, and George Aaronow) are given a strong incentive by Blake to succeed in a sales contest. The prizes? First prize is a Cadillac Eldorado, second prize is a set of steak knives, third prize is the sack! There is no room for losers in this dramatically masculine world; only "closers" will get the good sales leads. There is a lot of pressure to succeed, so a robbery is committed which has unforeseen consequences for all the characters

Undoubtably one of the best of all time...
This movie rocks it has an all star cast and the rollercoaster ride starting with the opening credits all the way to the closing credits is worth every penny. This is how salespeople used to grind out a living, it was a numbers game sure, but it wasn't order taking like it is today, it was a battle of wits and value. AWESOME

Astonishing
The first time I saw this movie my jaw was hanging down and my mouth wide open from start to finish. I was gripped.

This movie has no sex, no violence, no car chases, no action - but absolutely the most powerful acting I have ever seen. Uncompromisingly realistic.

Having said that, I can understand why so many people do NOT like it - you have to like dramas, and especially one centered so much around desparation and conflict, and NOT around action. It is adapted from the stage play, and I appreciate the way in which it was shot, retaining so much of the raw appeal that can only be felt at the theatre, as opposed to the cinema.

This movie is a veritable who's who of acting, with Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Ed Harris, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, Jonathan Pryce - not to mention a then-relatively-unknwon Kevin Spacey.

If you can appreciate powerful acting, films based on dialogue with few scene changes, and can withstand an absolute barrage of foul language (which I must add is perfectly suited to this film), then this movie will blow you away.

Amazing Performances!
I have nothing bad to say about any of the performances in this movie. Alec Baldwin is simply brilliant in his speech.

Overrated
Glengarry Glen Ross is a movie with all dialogue and no action. If you're expecting another Die Hard or Scarface, you will be disappointed. If you like to watch movies with lots of dialogue and some humor along the way, this might be for you.

One of My Favorite Speeches...
in this movie. The speech by Alec Baldwin makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. He is soooo powerful in this movie. Absolutely, the best part of the movie. The actors are top notch along with the acting. Don't expect too many sets. It is all about the drama and the good acting. Jack Lemmon does an outstanding job!

Highly recommended.

All The Best,

Michael McDonald

It's as easy as A.B.C
Quite simply a classic. This movie contains some decent acting and more than a few memorable one-liners! Some of it is downright hilarious. The characters are well defined and the story is well scripted. While it might come off as a bit cliche in today's world, its still a pretty good movie. Not as good as the original Wall Street, but I still liked it.

Nothing that good!
I agree with some of the other reviewers about it being overated. Movie is about real estate leads and nothing to crazy to watch unless your really bored like I was before I watched it

a bit overated
A bit overated by the sales & broker community. The movie itself is slow. But it does have a few epic scenes that make the movie. Now that ive seen it i'd rather just watch those scenes on youtube and bypass the rest.

Abc
I loved this movie when I was younger and in the industry. I related to it like Office Space to those who work in cubicle cooperate America. It depicted certain personalities that are very true to reality. Over all its a must watch for people in sales of any kind, and an ok watch for anyone who wants a real feel for the old school of sales. However, your wife may not be so into it as mine fell asleep within the first 30 mins.

"That watch costs more than you car. I made $970,000 last year. How much you make? You see pal, that's who I am, and you're nothing. Nice guy? I don't give a s**t. Good father? F**k you! Go home and play with your kids. You wanna work here - close! "
