American Buffalo Review

Hardly Mamet's finest play-cum-film, American Buffalo has that Mamet cadence, but none of the soul. Revolving around the pathetic attempts of two penny-ante crook wannabes and their plans to rob a coin collector, the film is circular, pedantic, and in the end, without a point -- if the picture tells us anything, it's to eschew pawn shops.
