Film Of The Day: Glengarry Glen Ross

Lets see here, we have Alec Baldwin, Al Pacino, Ed Harris, Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, etc. This movie was, “The Expendables” of the 90’s. A movie full of iconic actors. This film tells a story about a group of salesmen, who were given a strong incentive by a man named Blake, to succeed in a sales contest. A set of prizes are given, and only closers will get the good sales leads.

This has always been one of my favorite flicks. I’ve watched this film too many times. Mainly because of Alec Baldwin’s performance as Blake, the villain of the film. Alec Baldwin has always been the best at playing asshole characters in films, why? Because I believe that’s what he is in real life. Of course, Jack Lemmon’s performance is golden in this film and so is Al Pacino. They’re all great!

This film may be a slow pacing movie, but it’s the dialogue in the script that will make you addicted to it. The movie is full of swearing and cuss words throughout the film, but the story is what’s important. This film is streamable for Netflix. If you don’t own the DVD/BluRay, watch it on Netflix. You won’t be disappointed!
