 DVDFILE.COM: Glengarry Glen Ross review   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Glengarry Glen Ross is a sort of postmodern Death of a Salesman, in which the Willy Lo-men are not angst-ridden with thoughts of spiritual redemption.
Because they have already sold their souls for the power of the dollar, for the careers that they willingly place before their lives and families, and for the chance to be bigger than the next guy and to cut that son of a bitch down to size.
Glengarry Glen Ross (even its title is a cryptic puzzle) pushes that concept to its limit with characters whose very livelihood is based on talking in circles.

 Clan MACDONELL OF GLENGARRY
Like the other two great branches of the clan, the MacDonalds of the Isles and of Clanranald, which contest with Glengarry the supreme chiefship of the name, the MacDonells are directly descended from Reginald, the younger son of the famous Somerled, King of the Isles in the twelfth century.
For a time Glengarry was regarded as the deer forest belonging to the royal castle of Inverlochy, and the MacDonalds held as royal tenants, but they afterwards obtained a crown charter.
Glengarry was released by the Privy Council, but the sons of his uncles grew up to waste Applecross with fire and sword, while Glengarry’s own son, Angus Og, harried Kintail, killed every man, woman, and child he could find, and drove a great spoil south to Glengarry.

 Glengarry Light Infantry Fencibles, 1812   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The first regiment was raised in Glengarry, Scotland in 1794 under the Glengarry chief with the future Bishop Alexander Macdonell as acting chaplain.
But here is where confusion begins to set in, for at the same time, recruitment began for the various companies of Glengarry Militia, this being the home guard of volunteers who drilled and paraded regularly but were not obliged, nor expected, to be posted far from home nor to be full-time professional soldiers.
It is quite understandable that persons with Glengarry ancestors could fail, under the circumstances, to distinguish between military service in either of the two Glengarry Fencibles or the Glengarry Militia.

Colors are rich, warm, and deep; contrast is beautifully handled, with fine detail and shading apparent in a wide range of light levels, from the glaring light of office overheads to the dim illumination of streetlights in the rain.
The dialogue is always clear, rich, and natural-sounding, and ambient noise is used extremely well to create a distinct sense of place, with the rain falling outside, cars passing by on the street, and the occasional thunder of a train all adding to the immersive audio experience.
Glengarry GlenRoss was interesting to watch, and kept me completely engaged throughout the film, but in retrospect I find it slightly unsatisfying, as if it promised more than it could deliver.

 Boston.com / A&E / Theater/Arts / REVIEW: 'Glengarry' hasn't lost its sting   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
More than two decades after it first arrived on Broadway, "Glengarry Glen Ross," David Mamet's scabrous, yet often hilarious look at the underbelly of the American Dream, has lost none of its sting.
In "Glengarry," Mamet dissects a group of Chicago real-estate salesmen, who, in their own sleazy way, are distant relatives of Willy Loman, the hapless Everyman in Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman."
Mamet's army of avaricious capitalists are more profane, more greedy than the iconic Loman, but each takes a special joy in closing the deal -- the ultimate in salesman satisfaction.

 Amazon.co.uk: DVD: Glengarry Glen Ross [1992]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The material is not inherently cinematic, so the Glengarry Glen Ross's greatest asset is Mamet's peerless dialogue and the assembly of the once-in-a-lifetime cast led by Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, and Alec Baldwin (the last in a role Mamet created especially for the film).
The movie is unusual by modern-day standards in that it features no violence and no sex, just some bad (but not gratuitous) language, and it relies on fast spoken dialogue alone to pull it through.
Due to some fantastic acting, and some great script-writing (not surprising since the film was based on a play by the same title), Glengarry Glen Ross easily holds the viewers attention for the full hour and forty minutes, and makes for gripping viewing throughout and up until the end of the nail-biting finale.
