Coffee's for closers! David Mamet captures the world of sales very successfully.

Glengarry Glen Ross is the perfect film about the world of sales and boiler room environments. A group of salesmen are given a choice. Either sell or hit the bricks. Three salesmen (Ed Harris, Jack Lemmon, Alan Arkin) and the company's hot shot seller are all involved in a shady land deal scheme. Their prize for making the most sales are a car, a set of steak knives and employment. To motivate the office, a "motivational" speaker (Alec Baldwin) is sent to their office to dangle new "leads" and to try and light a fire under their tails. Can the new leads and the speech revitalize the company or will desperate men do desperate things to stay ahead?

A great film filled with a plethora of quotable lines and unforgettable characters (Lemmon and Baldwin's for example have been spoofed on the Simpsons, especially Shelly Levene). A highly underrated film featuring one of Al Pacino's last real acting performance. If you see this film on the rental shelves don't pass it by.
