  • I really felt for the old men in the movie Glengarry Glen Ross which was filmed in 1992 especially for the character of Shelley Levine who keeps going on the whole day and night to ensure a sale out of the weak lead he has but in the end, it was not a sale at all but a mockery from some residents who just love talking to salesmen but indeed no capability to buy a property

      For the first time in my life, I have never watched a movie that is so depressing. I had never gotten over it until after a day when I’ve watched it. I really felt for the old men in the movie Glengarry Glen Ross which was filmed in 1992 especially for the character of Shelley Levine who keeps going on the whole day and night to ensure a sale out of the weak lead he has but in the end, it was not a sale at all

      but a mockery from some residents who just love talking to salesmen but indeed no capability to buy a property.

      Worse, he was given a multimillion worth of a bouncing check. The trouble with the 4 “used to be sales champions” turned losers is that they get so concerned about going after the Glengarry Glen Ross Leads which turn out to be outdated ones.

      And one of them, braves to break into the office to steal the leads and that is Shelley Levine. That made him close ...


      • a sale.

        Little does he know, this sale is after all a hoax. All the other characters have their own predicament.

        Like Ricky Roma. He is supposed to have a closed sale but his client, James Lingk (Jonathan Pryce) backs out because of fear that his wife will sue him.

        The other two old men who cannot make a sale after all the efforts are Dave Moss and George Aaronow. What makes them scram into their individual messes is the depreciating motivation of their

        Sales Manager, Mr.

        Blake (Alec Baldwin) and the least supportive and yet, cold blooded secretary in the office, John Williamson (Kevin Spacey). This movie starred Jack Lemon (Shelley Levene), Ed Harris (Dave Moss), Alan Arkin (George Aaronow), Al Pacino (Ricky Roma).

        It was critically directed by James Foley. Here I go again with my pitfalls of drama syndrome.

        I really admired the outstanding performances of these respected actors. They were really good in passing on the despair to the audience like me in the the character they portrayed.
