One of the most self-assured plays ever written meets one of the best casts ever assembled, and the results are as expected: fucking stupid good. Glengarry Glen Ross captures the bravado and ruthlessness of American capitalism, personifying its masculine energy and pain. A group of salesmen working off leads struggle to win a contest where the main prize is not being fired. Alec Baldwin's "Always Be Closing" pep talk is just one high point in a film riddled with them.
