Rolling Stone "...The dialogue is a pleasure....The bone-tired-don't-bother-me Mamet acting fits perfectly here..." Film Comment "...HOMICIDE absolutely holds your interest....It's a thrilling ride while it lasts, and it marks Mamet's emergence as a writer-director to be reckoned with..." Los Angeles Times "...[A] period piece, which gets by on sheer outrageousness..."

"...WINSLOW BOY triumphs in giving several superb actors an intelligent, unobtrusive setting..." Variety Ranked #9 in Rolling Stone's "Ten Best Movies of 1999" Rolling Stone "...[A] surprisingly faithful adaptation..." Sight and Sound "...A drama of wicked subtlety and moral finesse..." -- Rating: A- Entertainment Weekly "...A precisely calibrated war of nerves in which truth and deceit are all-important....[Pidgeon] bristles most effectively and plays Catherine with strong presence and a sharp, lucid edge..." New York Times "...Brilliant dialogue....Mamet's script clips along at such a rate, in fact, that just as one dazzling phrase or turn has barely registered, he's amazing you with another..." Box Office "...Absorbing....Keeping it going are the inherent appeal of sheer principle as a dramatic force and the performances..."USA Today "...A pointed examination of the price of seeking justice....Genteel moviemaking with modern overtones, THE WINSLOW BOY is especially good at the visual re-creation of its time..." Los Angeles Times "...There is a wonderful audacity in the way that the outcome of the case happens offscreen and is announced in an indirect manner....Mamet's characters are interesting precisely because of the reserve and detachment they bring to passion..."

"...HEIST is an old-fashioned caper-flick about honor and the lack thereof....Mamet's direction is more fluid than it's ever been..." Premiere "...Clever....Hackman brings the material considerable authority with a subdued, wily turn..." Variety "...Tight, snug and lovingly constructed....Mr. Mamet allows his eye to follow his ear and never lets his camera get in the way of the actors....It would be hard to imagine an actor more intelligent than Mr. Hackman..."New York Times "...[Featuring] a rock-solid Gene Hackman role and performance..."USA Today "...The set-ups are impeccably orchestrated and the acting's full bodied..." Total Film "...Mamet loves language, but he also admires the guys-doing-stuff beauty of well-executed, precisely timed physical maneuvers. Hackman and DeVito, in particular, savor their roles like medium-rare steaks..." Los Angeles Times "...Mamet gives the plot more twists than a bag of pretzels....HEIST delivers the kick of a job well done..." Rolling Stone "...The kind of caper movie that was made before special effects replaced wit, construction and intelligence..." Chicago Sun-Times45.30384
