Possibly The Greatest Speech Ever

I picked up the film Glengarry Glen Ross yesterday at Best Buy. They’re having a sale on Artisan DVDs for 4 BUCKS each. I also picked up The Running Man and Pi. I wanted to get American Psycho as well.

Anyhow, this is the early scene that basically sets up the rest of Glengarry Glen Ross. It features Alec Baldwin pretty much giving the best performance I’ve ever seen him give. Fortunately, the rest of the stellar cast lives up to it for the rest of the film. Seriously, the film is based on a play (both are written by David Mamet) and you can tell. The film is just carried by the superb, vitriolic script and the half-dozen brillant performances that are just piled on top of one another. Al Pacino. Jack Lemmon. Kevin Spacey. Ed Harris. Alan Arkin. All incredible.

Without further ado, I present to you Pure. Awesome.
