“Get mad, you sons of bitches! Get mad!”

One of my favourite monologues ever, this. Alec Baldwin in Glengarry Glen Ross lights a fire up the arse of Jack Lemon, Ed Harris et al, watched by a snarky Kevin Spacey. Ed Harris barely says a word, but his reaction is pitch perfect. Awkward and uncomfortable.

It might be slightly cynical, but in many ways it’s scarily real. Then of course there’s Ricky Roma (Al Pacino), but I’ll leave you to discover him. Best to just watch the movie.
