Afterwards, you’ll want to cheer and do a mitzvah.
I know I did. My video review.
I yield to no one in my hatred of David Mamet’s films. I find his dialogue so compressed it might as well be a series of obscene grunts. His movies seem artificial and generally loathsome. When I watch them, I feel like I’m being raped. Oy ve, the last film I saw written by David Mamet was 2005’s Edmond. I hated it.
But this movie is great. It’s moral. It’s inspiring. It builds to a shattering climax. I kept waiting for it to turn loathsome and it never happens. It just entertains, provokes and inspires.
Mamet’s rabbi, Dr. Mordecai Finley of Ohr HaTorah, has a minute-long cameo as a fighter.
Other David Mamet movies I’ve liked include State & Main, Wag the Dog, The Edge, Hoffa, Glengarry Glenross, The Untouchables, About Last Night, The Verdict, The Postman Always Rings Twice…
