This movie makes most people uncomfortable. It's not an easy movie towatch. Its like watching a gruesome accident but not being able tostop. Edmond is a middle age man going through a crisis. His life ismeaningless and boring but he is content to plod along until a seriesof chance encounters leads h...
At first glance, horror meister Stuart Gordon would not seem theobvious choice to direct an emotional psycho-drama cinematic renderingof a David Mamet play, yet with Edmond, he displays a deft touch forthe material and allows the actors to carry the day.Originally penned as a stage play, Edmond tell...
This movie is similar to "Falling Down" in its plot, and "Crash' in theway it deals with lives spinning our of control because of racism andother intolerance, but I thought it was far more believable and had amore satisfying end than both. I have watched "Edmond" three times overthe last two days (i...
Who says Stuart Gordon is just a horror movie director? He's a truefilmmaker and here, working with the screenplay by David Mamet (adaptedfrom his play) proves that. William H. Macy again shows how good he isas the title character, a guy who blows a fuse and looks for his placein the world wandering...
Edmondreviewed by Sam Osborn rating: 3.5 out of 4 Edmond is a hardboiled, sharp-edged, loud-mouthed catharsis. Pure,unabashed emotion spilled onto the screen. It's daring, provocative,and beautifully offensive. It's as if screenwriter David Mamet vomitedthe words onto the pages, expulsing them from ...
I saw that movie as a Canadian premiere at Fantasia film festival andand I was fascinated. Stuart Gordon is not a legendary filmmakerwithout a good reason. Once again, he showed us his "savoir-faire" andhis talent. David Mamet's screenplay is profound and psychologicallycomplex. It's a kick in the a...
William H. Macy is nothing short of spectacular in this film, as wasevery other actor that graced the screen. The performances were a realcredit to both the actor's creativity and the masterful direction ofStuart Gordon. Not to mention a pretty interesting, yet, twisted scriptby Mamet. This is a fil...
Edmond looks like a man that is not in touch with reality, when onefirst meet him. He is leaving the office and is told an appointment hasbeen rescheduled for 1.15pm and it's handed a piece of paper with thosenumbers. The next thing he knows is he is standing in front of afortune teller shop that ha...
The incredible William Macy gives us a glimpse into real madness inEDMOND, a sort of FALLING DOWN for the new millennium. Macy's lifebegins to unravel, and he ends up falling into an urban hell where heencounters and sometimes gets rough with, or roughed up by, variousseedy characters (this is suppo...
Interesting, if not altogether captivating slice o' night andconsequences of one Edmond Burke; a man who is driven to the edge, andall areas after, following his decision to essentially walk away fromeverything due to feeling unfulfilled in life. Working from this alwaysrelate-able premise, Mamet cr...
We have here a night of debauchery, violence, anger, and hate whichcould only be delivered by David Mamet's lyrical prose and the horrorbackground of director Stuart Gordon. Think Scorsese's After Hours, butdead serious and shrouded in pitch black darkness. Much like Mamet'sOleanna, also based on hi...
Its a great movie. So exciting! Usually cruel in telling the truth. Itgets you in, ties your arms and legs, and at the end, hits you realhard. There is good quality black humor served as rare cookedconversations. Important little details and the declaration oflooserness inside the movie is amazing. ...
Written in Chicago, set in New York, filmed in LA; written in the early80's about a man seemingly out of the 1950's and now set in the presentday. You'd think the director of "Reanimator" would be ideal for thisFrankenstein but instead it's all abby-normal parts that aren't alive.There are few surpr...
Stuart Gordon was a shrewd choice to direct David Mamet's twenty yearold stage play because what we're dealing with here is pure fear andthick dread. In other words -- horror. William H. Macy is "Edmond", aman who comes to the conclusion that his life has been a terrible wasteand it's time he did so...
I don't know the first thing about David Mamet or his other work.However, I will say that this movie adaptation of his play Edmond sure-felt- like a play. A bad one. There's a lot of speaking but no actualdialogue or screenplay -- just a whole lot of nauseating, overwroughtexistential musing. There'...
I am a William H. Macy fan, and I must sadly admit that I felt this washis worst performance so far. The cover of the box claims that thismovie is "a heart-pounding thriller". I did not find this movie to bethe least bit thrilling. In fact, I found it to be fairly predictable.It also says that it is...
I expected more from this film, considering the writer (Mamet) and thelead (Macy). Basically it's about a quiet, middle aged man who suddenlygets sick of his life, from his (evidently irritating) job to hisloveless marriage, and one evening, apparently due to a bad Tarotreading, he decides to quit h...
David Mamet scripted this existential undertaking directed byhorror-meister Stuart Gordon about Edmond's slow journey into an abyssof sadness after leaving his wife. It really is a series of encountersthat mold and shape Edmond into the unrecognizable man he'll wind upbeing by the end of the film. S...
This movie is an adapted screenplay of a David Mamet play. It ispointless and senseless. It has two very violent but not entirelygraphic scenes that are uncomfortable to watch. It has an all-star castof cameos and stars William H. Macy - who is excellent in the role.This movie appears to be an obvio...
Urban horror or David Mamet's unique vision of New York City from thepoint of view of one hapless white man named Edmond? I'm not sure, butyou have to be rather sorry for this man who is clueless about hissurroundings and inexorably marching to his own doom (or bliss, judgingby where he winds up). I...
I'm shocked and amazed to hear this film referred to as "slice o'life"(?) and compared to Falling Down.Edmond is not a film about a repressed schmuck who one day, just flipsout and decides he isn't going to take it anymore. Instead, it is abouta repressed schmuck, who, totally without awareness, beg...
"Edmond," by default, is going to earn comparisons (both positive andnegative) to such 'white-guys-at-war-with-the-world' films as "TaxiDriver," "Falling Down," and possibly "Death Wish." As directed byStuart Gordon (most renowned for his H.P. Lovecraft adaptations), thefilm is very detached from re...
Wow I just watched 'Edmond' and I'm pretty shocked both positively andnegatively. William Macy and the rest of the actors did some greatacting. W. Macy plays a mid-aged man who is fed up with his life. Thenone day a fortune-teller says to him that he doesn't live where hebelongs. He decides change h...
It's tempting to just give all of the credit (or all of the blame, orboth) to David Mamet for this adaptation of his play about a regularbusinessman in a complete downward spiral in one night, Edmond. And whynot? He wrote the screenplay, too, and nearly every scene wherecharacters speak, even the on...
A Little traumatized and some unforgettable moments I'd recommend thismovie to those interested in seeing mugging, cell mate love, and selfdestruction.. It has been some time since I have seen the film but ithas stained my mind of William h Macy from now on. Most people in myopinion would never be c...
