Edmond (2005)


David Mamet wrote the screenplay for this adaptation of his play about a man who sudenly stumbles into a new and dangerous life.  Edmond Burke (William H. Macy) is on his way home from work one evening when he impulsively stops to had his fortune read by a woman who informs him, "You are not where you belong."  When he does arrive home, Edmond soon falls into an argument with his wife (Rebecca Pidgeon), and he storms out into the city where he stops at a bar for a few drinks.  There, Edmond finds himself talking with a man (Joe Mantegna) who freely shares his racist views about the role of African-Americans in society, and suddenly Edmond begins letting go of the sense of self-control that has always governed his actions.  After a crawl through the city's underbelly of wateringholes, strip clubs, gambling dens, and brothels, Edmond comes face to face with the violence of this world, and unexpectedly finds himself responding in kind.  Edmond also stars Julie Stiles, Denise Richards, Mena Suvari, Bai Ling, and Dylan Walsh; it was directed by Stuart Gordon, who worked often with David Mamet during their early days at Chicago's Organic Theater Company.
