Glenngarry Glen Ross: Mamet's Eisensteinian Success Story

This paper argues that though many adaptations of David Mamet's plays to film have been less than successful, the film version of Glengarry Glen Ross succeeds for a variety of reasons, including an Eisensteinian 'uninflected cut.' In a well-made Mamet film, one element of a scene comments on another, informing it, and that informs the audience's interpretive activity as they consider these uninflected cuts.
