David Mamet’s EDMOND

Filed under: Film,Listings,Press Releases — offoffbway @ 10:56 am

EDMOND is a screwy play, to the say the least. Unlike Mamet’s better known work (such as Glengarry Glen Ross, which was also made into a film), this is dark without much redemption for the main character. William H. Macy is the premiere interpreter of Mametspeak onstage (he was supposed to play the lead in EDMOND a few years back, but it didn’t work out) and on screen (he’s incredible in Homicide, a Mamet film that’s just plain weird), so he should go to town with this part. As a film, EDMOND will probably be more real and less surreal than it was onstage, a bit more of a thriller with some extra bite. But that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Read the review in today’s New York Times for a well-measured opinion.

First Independent Pictures presents the motion picture, EDMOND opening
July 14th in New York City at the Quad Cinema on West 13th Street
and at the Lincoln Plaza Cinema on Broadway between 62nd and 63rd.

Based on the classic play by acclaimed American writer David Mamet – this grisly, psychological journey is a must see.
Tour-de-force performances by William H. Macy, Julia Stiles and others…!
