Alec Baldwin – Best Performance (Glengarry Glen Ross) 1992 Classic

‘A-B-C. A-Always, B-Be, C-Closing. Always be closing, ALWAYS BE CLOSING!’

Everyone should at once in their lives watch the independent black comedy Glengarry Glen Ross from 1992.

It has so many humorous but relevant quotes from the outset – It starts like “We’re adding a little something to this month’s sales contest. As you all know, first prize is a Cadillac El Dorado. Anyone wanna see second prize? Second prize is a set of steak knives. Third prize is you’re fired,” says the character Blake, setting the mood early on.

This film in my opinion is made by a fantastic scene from ‘Alec Baldwin’ where he comes from downtown to deliver some news and the new leads.

So many Sales Managers/ Directors who have watched this film have to say that to give a speech like this every so often would be so self rewarding!

This film was a critically-acclaimed box office bust that earned a Best Actor nomination at the Oscar’s for Al Pacino, who was joined by Alec Baldwin, Jack Lemmon, Kevin Spacey, Ed Harris, Alan Arkin and other familiar faces.

I remember going back a few years now an old boss of mine used to send this link across to us all as its coarse language. If you’re easily offended by a ‘little’ foul language then you may not want to watch is – especially the clip I have posted below.

The film, dubbed ‘Death of the F***in’ Salesman’ because of its similar themes to Arthur Miller’s classic play and its coarse language, is an actor’s film destined to be a cult classic… well shot, smartly lit, full of quotes,(which I think are brilliant) a simple plot with deeper themes, filled with younger versions of top-flight actors. Awesome!
