"...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 Weekly38.13638

Sight and Sound "...Refreshingly sophisticated..." -- Rating: B+ Entertainment Weekly "...[The] effects cleverly capture the little-guy-in-the-big-room scenario....Litefoot cuts a striking figure..." Variety "...The most self-effacing of films, a gentle and low-key effort directed in a determinedly non-flashy manner....Scardino is one of the few child actors who actually seems like a real kid..." Los Angeles Times38.13638
