David Mamet's Speed-The-Plow is a sly and often brutal satire on ambition and greed, set in Hollywood. It is a study of male culture, buddies, bravura, comic bluster, feverish energy, and high-octane acting. With hectic, often overlapping dialogue, this Mamet masterpiece uses language as a form of camouflage rather than a means of communication. The story is also a study of art versus commerce and the ultimate hollowness of an industry. It has been called a modern-day Faust: An exploration of moral temptation, where a Hollywood producer is forced to choose between corporate and personal values against a backdrop of loyalty, betrayal, idealism, manipulation, and sex.
