At one point, William H. Macy's character says "F-ck you, f-ck the lot of you, f-ck you all!". Director David Mamet previously used this line in the film "Glengarry Glen Ross (it was shouted by Ed Harris's character). See more »

A fascinating journey of a man masterfully directed
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.
