      Emanuel Levy Variety Based on Mamet's experience as a freighter on the Great Lakes while a grad English lit student, Mantegna's screen version is so dramatically inert and artistically shapeless resulting in an uninvolving memory film. Rated: C Aug 28, 2006 Full Review Jay Boyar Orlando Sentinel Watching it, you come to understand what it is that Mamet has been true to all these years. Rated: 4/5 Mar 7, 2002 Full Review Moira MacDonald Seattle Times As drama, it's not much; as a meditation on language and storytelling, it's a treat. Jan 4, 2002 Full Review Film Threat Rated: 3.5/5 Dec 6, 2005 Full Review Chuck O'Leary Fantastica Daily Rated: 3/5 Oct 8, 2005 Full Review Emanuel Levy EmanuelLevy.Com Rated: 3/5 Jul 21, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Wm W Live on Lake Michigan. Father worked on Great Lakes. Every crew member aboard was dedicated, professional. No one in movie works, or prepares for next port. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/04/24 Full Review Audience Member MANTEGNA: Hey David, I'm thinking of trying my hand at directing. Can you write something for me? MAMET: Sure Joe. PFFFFFFTTTTTT!!!!!! Here ya go! MANTEGNA: Thanks.
