    Hammers away at the plot so relentlessly that you can feel the nails entering the back of your skull.
  2. There is no evidence of life outside the immediate world of the movie.

    Interesting to watch like well-performed gymnastics but it never really connects.

    My all time favorite movie probably, so excuse me both for being biased AND for not being an expert on movies enough to say anything remotelyMy all time favorite movie probably, so excuse me both for being biased AND for not being an expert on movies enough to say anything remotely deep or accurate about it. I honestly don't know what to say, I remember I was amazed by the fact that despite being a movie relying solely on dialogue I wasn't bored in the slightest, but that's comparative and also from the PoV of a modern hyperactive kid or something, so disregard that: on its own merit, it made me care about most characters, wonder about who was the "culprit" at the end, and they were all detailed in their own way. I read aferwards that it was actually an adaptation from a famous play, and after rewatching it, I could totally see the theatrality in it: the characters coming in and out of the scene, the intertwined plots. I really don't know what to say, all the actors were amazing and the story was awesome and it described the grim reality of something as mundane as salesmen, and even managed to slip in some suspence with the final theft thing among all that beautifully crafted dialogue. I liked it very much! Full Review »

This gritty performance is absolutely spot on acting. And perhaps one of the best casts ever assembled. I wish they'd made a second one. Full Review »
