A man in a suit at a Manhattan firm leaves work on Friday; he looks unhappy. He stops at a fortune teller's for a Tarot reading: "You are not where you belong," she tells him. That evening he quits his marriage and walks the streets of New York, passing from a classy bar to a gentleman's club, then to a high-class bordello, a mugging, a pawnshop, and a diner where someone does listen. He shares his insights with her and later with others. Violence, disappointment, and musings entwine as Edmond loses his moorings while believing he's found them. Where does he belong?

A fascinating journey of a man masterfully directed
19 March 2006 | by (Buenos Aires) – See all my reviews

Who says Stuart Gordon is just a horror movie director? He's a true filmmaker and here, working with the screenplay by David Mamet (adapted from his play) proves that. William H. Macy again shows how good he is as the title character, a guy who blows a fuse and looks for his place in the world wandering the city streets at night. Gordon, Mamet and Macy (along with all the cast made of famous actors) tell a tale in just 76 min. filled with thoughtful moments and great monologues. This is a true movie that leaves the spectator thinking about his own life and his conformism. "Edmond" follows this guy and what he says is so crazy but consistent in his own terms that makes you wonder about a lot of things. You won't believe all the actors that are here, no more than one scene each, especially Julia Stiles, a truly gifted actress with a soothing voice and deep composition.
