David Mamet: Macho man with an incredible awareness of human fallibility. I am depressed to read that David Mamet has swung to the right. In an essay for the Village VoiceMamet claims he is no longer a "brain-dead liberal" and increasingly espouses a free-market philosophy and social conservatism.
Tribeca Film Festival. Unreasonable Men by Michael Wolraich. So David Mamet decided that he had to weigh in on gun lawsand tell everyone that everyone should have lots of guns all the time.
Playwright and screenwriter David Mamet knows what Joe Six-Pack likes, but he also knows how Joe Six-Pack lives and talks and what he needs, so much so that motivational experts actually use Mamet's film "Glengarry Glen Ross" -- which does for selling what skewers do for cherry tomatoes -- as a motivational tool. He once wrote porn, and maybe that explains how he mows down bullshit with his satire, yet still sells popcorn. Mamet's machine-gun dialogue, both an "Airplane"-style joke on noir and a pitch-perfect copy of every overconfident asshole you ever met, is so beautiful yet utilitarian it's like holding a well-made steak knife when there's nothing to cook. You just admire it.
Keep It Under Your Stetson. You had to feel your way along until you found Mamet hidden away, which is how it is with him. Mamet, who is masterly at communicating his meanings in public, is prickly in private.
Who is Ann Althouse? I bet the director was surprised that Mamet would be willing to challenge his choice in this current climate. I say we organize a boycott of Mamet, and force anybody associated with him fire him.
