The Twin Geekscast 25: Glengarry Glen Ross (1992)

David Mamet’s masterful stage play of four salesman fighting for their jobs in the desperate world of real estate is a compelling film that is not glorified nearly as much as it deserves to be. The slick, clean writing is filled with double speak and business jargon which oftentimes repels viewers from engaging, but should be respected for its unwillingness to talk down to its audience. These lines are given through terrific performances of the film’s all-star cast, boasting legendary performances from Jack Lemmon, Al Pacino, Kevin Spacey, and of course the famous “Always be Closing” speech that has defined Alec Baldwin’s career. Glengarry Glen Ross is a sharp film about the cutthroat world of the salesman, pulling no punches and delivering a complex character study of beaten and broken men at their wits’ end.
