"...Entertaining, deadpan, seriocomic melodrama....Mamet's screenplay builds much like a whopping good poker game..." New York Times Included in the New York Times "10 Best Films of 1987" New York Times "...Writer David Mamet's first trip behind the camera as director is entertaining good fun, an American film noir with Hitchcockian touches..." Variety "...A real curve ball....Mamet has elevated the dialogue to the foreground....GAMES is smart..." Film Comment "...Coldly absorbing....Mamet gives us the plot in crisp layers....[The] dialogue -- subtly rhythmed, pungent, terrifically well written -- carries the movie..." Los Angeles Times "...Mamet's dialogue starts with the plain red bricks of reality, and mortars them into walls that are slightly askew..." Chicago Sun-Times "With a parlor-trick plot and neon-lit cinematography right out of Edward Hopper's NIGHTHAWKS, GAMES is a con within a con within a con." -- Grade: A-Entertainment Weekly49.23292

"...There are many fine performances and sensitive moral issues contained in [THE VERDICT]..." Variety "...Newman delivers....A clever, suspenseful, entertaining movie..." New York Times "...One of the most gripping courtroom dramas ever made..." USA Today 3 stars out of 5 -- "[The film] features a typically engaging performance from Newman..."Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 - "[T]he bulk of the heavy dramatic lifting...is in the play of emotions across Newman's craggy features. Few other stars have ever had the guts to sink to this whisky-soaked low."Total Film "One of Lumet's best films, this David Mamet-scripted courtroom drama combines the liberal humanism found in the director's earlier 12 ANGRY MEN with a barbed, satirical edge."Sight and Sound0.6205217
