Homicide, David Mamet's ponderous film about a Jewish cop losing his way, loses its way whenever it wanders from the scene of the crime

As Mamet writes, so he directs -- his shots get to the point, usually one we don't forget.

Nobody does it like Mamet. A terrific cop movie.

Exciting, but at times heavy-handed. Worth a watch if not for William H. Macy calling people faggots and telling other detectives to shut the fuck up.

Finally tracked this one down and I'm glad that I did. The dialogue is very Mamet which means incredible dialogue and monologues that actors will be using… More
