    • David Mamet & director commentary


    David Mamet wrote the screenplay for this adaptation of his play about a man who suddenly stumbles into a new and dangerous life. Edmond Burke (William H. Macy) is on his way home from work one evening when he impulsively stops to have his fortune read by a woman who informs him, "You are not where you belong." When he does arrive home, Edmond soon falls into an argument with his wife (Rebecca Pidgeon), and he storms out into the city, where he stops at a bar for a few drinks. There, Edmond finds himself talking with a man (Joe Mantegna) who freely shares his racist views about the role of African-Americans in society, and suddenly Edmond begins letting go of the sense of self-control that has always governed his actions. After a crawl through the city's underbelly of watering holes, strip clubs, gambling dens, and brothels, Edmond comes face to face with the violence of this world, and unexpectedly finds himself responding in kind. Edmond also stars Julia Stiles, Denise Richards, Mena Suvari, Bai Ling, and Dylan Walsh; it was directed by Stuart Gordon, who worked often with David Mamet during their early days at Chicago's Organic Theater Company. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      Excellent movie!!!


      Stuart Gordon and William H. Macy together, you can't go wrong! This is a great look at a simple nerdy man driven over the edge. Much like Micheal Douglas in Falling Down, the world pushes him around til he finally pushes back. A terrific film with a f***ed up ending. And you know Stuart Gordon had to give Jeffrey Combs a cameo! My wife and I loved it! A definite buy! You may also want to check out Bruiser, by George A. Ramero.

      william h macy is a very bad dude.


      david mamet is still a great writer/producer of human/psycho/personal/dramatic/intrigue type films. this one will help you to see william h macy in very very nontraditional style, that he normally does not play. he is awesome in this. much much more intense than his roles in fargo or irreversible errors and many of his other films. gotta see this over and over!!
