Mamet-ology.

Ronin. John Frankenheimer. I wondered why this movie was good, and finally found out. It was written by David Mamet (under a pseudonym) although the story is written by someone else, the screenplay sold it. Ronin became a better movie because of it, as well as the acting (which is a character De Niro always plays). Frankenheimer of course is no pushover director and did a brilliant job with the realism counter. I say this is one of the better movies about bank heists, double crosses and so forth. David Mamets hand is visible in this good movie. (1998)
