Near the beginning, the chap with the glass eye proudly announces "Look at me, I made it. And I've got a glass eye". Both eyes then swivel to look at Pete, then away, showing us that it is a contact lens. See more »

Original, bleak, funny and insightful
28 July 2004 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Just saw this on DVD last night. It is not a comedy, although there are some very funny bits in it. There are also some deeply poignant moments in the movie,

particularly involving Pete.

And, there are some wonderful insights into to what makes this salesman's

character tick. Timothy Spall is brilliant, and his supporting cast members,

including Michael Begley and James Cartwright, are well suited for their roles.

Worth a look for its current take on salesmen, selling and the end of an era. A dark "Death of a Salesman", or darker "Oh Lucky Man" so to speak.
