his name was David Mamet..stimulating the natural flow of saliva in my mouth..
firstly and foremost; this is not an attack on Mamet himself but more so a indication that people overextend sometimes in life. I felt this was an overextension of Mamet's abilities as a director and as a piece of writing; it felt rushed. I wont go into how and what the movie is about because the name alludes to it but I will say personally I wouldn't waste my time. I will point out several problems I encountered to support my opinion. the plot had more holes than fishnet tights, characters had zero depth, it felt to me that the 'job' had about as much risk as stealing a pen at work.
positives would be the casting and the film's length - any longer and I would have given it the boot.
it's worth noting that I don't usually review films because I wouldn't contribute in any meaningful way and I normally don't read reviews because the medium of film is completely subjective however if you encounter my 'review'; don't take my word for it because what movie have I directed/written?.. I have however watched many films and I am qualified to say this film is, as my best friend would say when he sees a unpleasing woman - a stinker. this movie also proves something of a theory of mine. Mamet wasn't God but a Man after all.
go watch House Of Games instead.
to finish with quoting the great Mamet - "You can't bluff someone who's not paying attention"
