"Mamet's savage look at a group of slimy small-time real estate salesmen. ... Harsh story examines the underhanded, eventually criminal activities of the salesmen as they compete to outdo each other in hustling dubious properties to phone clients. Key to their sales efforts are quality 'leads, ' which have a lot to do with whether they satisfy their hard-driving bosses and are able to keep their jobs. Most in danger of getting the ax is, unsurprisingly, the oldest employee, Shelley Levene, who begs, pleads and deals for better leads than the worthless ones he's been dealt. By rote, he makes his time-worn sales pitches, both over the phone and in person but in the high-powered sales world personified by Blake, the terrorist from the head office, there's clearly no place for a dinosaur like Shelley. Also in jeopardy and strategizing in different ways are George and Dave. Kevin Spacey plays the by-the-books office manager while Jonathan Pryce plays a cowering customer. But in contrast to all these drones is Ricky Roma, a hotshot salesman who seems to know every trick in the book and how to play them. Unlike the others, Roma is nattily dressed, tan, and comes off like a guy who's going to use the system, not be used by it"--Variety review by Todd McCarthy, August 31, 1992
