Original, bleak, funny and insightful, 28 July 2004
Author: JaneED from Los Angeles

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.
