Plot Outline:

Deals behind the scenes at a rather ruthless Chicago real estate office. Only closers are wanted here and Blake has the ultimate test - a sales contest where the winner gets a car, the runner-up some steak knives and third place - gets fired. The incentives are high - high enough to break the law in pursuit of perfection. -- Chris Kavan

The strength in this minimalist drama is in the acting and the writing, which are both razor-sharp. Jack Lemmon, in particular, plays against type to play a bitter and villainous character. The film is adapted from a play and the economy of sets and sights serves the powerful story well.

It's almost uncomfortable to watch this movie that features a bunch of poor real estate salesmen so desperate to make sales and keep their jobs that they back-stab, lie, grovel and otherwise dehumanize themselves. Sounds like great fun, doesn't it? Well, it is! David Mamet adapted his play for the screen and got a stellar cast to work with. Among the most memorable lines are those that are spit out by Alec Baldwin, playing a character who wasn't even in the play.

Always Be Closing

For those of you that love dialogue to move your story along and not cute plot points, this is the film for you. I don't know a lot about David Mamet, but what I do know is this is truly his movie. This would be one of those few films that would tear apart Auteur Theory, which basically says, the director is the true creative mind behind the film and all of a director's films have the same characteristics. Now one could say that that theory only works for auteurs, but that's another argument entirely. The point I'm trying to make is this, Mamet, the screenwriter and not Foley, the director, is responsible for making this what it is. The films also feels like a play, with sparse sets.

I'm probably slightly under-rating this film, but I just couldn't quite get myself to give it a hi...
