"Glengarry Glen Ross" (1992). This film examines the cutthroat business of real estate and the plight of the working man as a group of agents are threatened with losing their jobs and livelihoods. In this clip a group of down-on-their luck sales reps who's careers are on the line, get a quick lesson in what it takes to be a "closer" from Alec Baldwin (I believe his best performance to date). The cast listing is nuts: Al Pacino, Jack Lemmon, Alec Baldwin, Alan Arkin, Ed Harris, and Kevin Spacey to name a few. Some of the best dialogue ever written, illustrating the rat race to a tee. Nigel - you the man, thanks for the 411. Highly recommended.
