Temporarily putting aside his role as playwright, director, and screenwriter, David Mamet digs deep and delivers thrity outrageously diverse vignettes. On subjects ranging from the vanishing American pool hall, family vacations, and the art of being a bitch, to the role of today's actors, his celebrated contemporaries and predecessors, and his undying commitment to the theater, David Mamet's concise style, lean dialogue, and gut-wrentching honesty give us a unique view of the world as he sees it.
