David Mamet’s “Edmond” is a remarkably brutal and nihilistic night-out-gone-wrong with a perfect ending. Oct 02, Mandy. I think this is about as close as art can usefully come to a thesis.
It’s focused and simple but not pedantic or quick to jump to conclusions. Like mamet keeps looking at these themes of money, power, sex, religion and is convinced of how his character moves through these scenarios, but less certain of what that inexorable unfolding means. May 31, Bobby rated it really liked it.
Quentin Tarrantino has cited Mamet as an influence in how mwmet writes his dialogue.
I love it when I can pick out the influences from artist to artist, as well as pick up that influence myself along the way. Edmond is thought provoking, uncomfortable at times, and truly dark. My kind of play.
Edmond (Modern Plays) David Mamet: Methuen Drama
Jul 30, Jessica rated it it was ok Shelves: I’d love to see this play on the stage. I found the character Edmond fascinating and curious. He’s a testimony to Mamet’s writing, which is controlled and sparse, leaving just enough leeway for the reader to imagine and wonder what is going on in Edmond’s mind. Mar 08, Letitia rated it did not like it.
Not a fan of Mamet anyway, and this one is the quintessential misogyny and nihilism that I detest. I find the story uninteresting and hard to believe, the moral if you can call it that disgusting and highly objectionable, and the main character despicable. Feb 03, Payam rated it it was ok Shelves: Dec 15, Nick Douglas rated it liked it. It’s like someone packed all Mamet’s minor plays into one. Aug 09, Rodney rated it really liked it. A very underrated play from David Mamet. The darkness of the character Edmond had the audience glued to the pages.
Nov 18, Colleen rated it really liked it. So confusing, but I liked it.
I think this one where I’d fdmond a lot from actually getting to see it live. May 13, Dan rated it really liked it. A play, quick read. Mar 13, Chuck O’Connor rated it liked it.
davd Great example of how plays need scenes that focus on mamef and how a protagonist needs to be singular if a point of view will be achieved. May 13, Alex Mayer rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent but very sad.
Nov 15, Niles Hunter rated it it was amazing. The movie is better than the book, but this book proves the movie was delivered verbatim. Nov 28, Macha Marvillet rated it liked it Shelves: Deeply disturbing but somehow captivating. Edmond’s will to find himself is astonishingly frightening. Jul 10, Max rated it did not like it.
Apr 09, Erin added it. Intense, dark, thought dvid. Is the most honest way to live to act on primal impulses? Jul 10, Chambers Stevens rated it liked it Shelves: The last scene in this play scared the crap out of me!!!! Feb 27, Mark rated it liked it.
