Director Stuart Gordon's 3rd August 2005 official statement for the film reads: "'Every fear hides a wish'. So says David Mamet through his hapless protagonist Edmond. 'When we fear things I think we wish for them. Death or burglars.' Edmond's fears cause him to buy a survival knife, which he soon puts to use. Julia Stiles told me that the script for 'Edmond' reminded her of Michael Moore's brilliant documentary 'Bowling for Columbine'  in which Moore suggests that the excessive violence on the streets of America is a result of racial fear."

I saw that movie as a Canadian premiere at Fantasia film festival and and I was fascinated. Stuart Gordon is not a legendary filmmaker without a good reason. Once again, he showed us his "savoir-faire" and his talent. David Mamet's screenplay is profound and psychologically complex. It's a kick in the ass for the American culture that must be seen, especially with the subject treated. What major studios refused to push forward, Mamet and Gordon doesn't give a sh** to show it. You don't like it, fine. But please, don't say that it's a movie to avoid. If it's the case, there is something you didn't understand... As Gordon says, William H. Macy is the Fred Astaire of acting. He's sincere and astonishing as the rest of the cast. In fact,I have no bad comments on this movie
