Le livre en lui même était parfait, sans accro ni rien du tout. Livré dans les temps. Mais l'histoire en elle-même n'a pas vraiment de sens et ce livre contient beaucoup de gros mots en anglais. Bref, ce n'est pas mon genre de livre!

a blank, startling, gripping work... 12 juin 2000
Par Caroline - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I am an actress, playwright, and constant theatergoer, so I'd like to think I know when a play is good...and believe me, this play is excellent. It is stark, realistic, and yet has a fantastic quality all its own. The story follows three small time crooks: Donny, the calm vet, Teach, daring and aching for adventure, and Bobby, the slow, amiable kid. Their plot to steal a valuable coin collection is the center of the play, but so much more goes into it. Honor amoung thieves, the busted American dream, and masculinity are at the core of this piece, and Mamet, with his honest style, pulls off what could very easily be a dumb crook spoof. It's a little hard to read at first, as all Mamet is, but if you envision the story, you'll get through it. I recently saw the play in New York at mamet's Atlantic company with Philip Baker Hall, William H. Macy, and Mark Webber, and it was truly great. I suggest owning the play and getting to a local performance asap.

Not for the Weak 26 juillet 2004
Par michael - Publié sur
Format: Broché
It's unfortunate that the first Amazon review of Mamet's brilliant work is by Mr. C.B.Liddell, a pompous, pontificating Brit who doesn't understand the play. I'm not sticking up for Mamet: his works are very hit and miss, and even the hits are an acquired taste (like Monty Python), I'm just standing up for a damn good play.

One of the problems with American Buffalo is that its language and setting (low-income Chicago in the 70's) are unfamiliar and difficult to appreciate for many people, but it's loved by many actors and writers in the same way that musicians appreciate "musician's music." Also, like Glengary Glen Ross, it can be emotionally violent and offensive for some people.

Still, a great work of art, in my humble opinion. Don't pass up the chance to see it performed by talented actors who know and love the play!

Mamet Hits a Single 17 septembre 2008
Par John F. Rooney - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Years ago I saw this play on the Great White Way. The set was fantastic with the busiest, most cluttered junk shop imaginable, packed to the gills with all sorts of stuff. The play itself was and is a very slight effort, and I cannot understand why it's being revived for the 2008-2009 Broadway season. There's very little to it. Three men are talking and talking and pausing. As in McDonagh's and Pinter's plays, we are not dealing with rocket scientists here. Mamet is the poor man's Pinter. Both come out of the absurdist tradition, but Mamet often seems to me to be hitting first base hits that never go anywhere and certainly don't score.
Donny runs the junk shop; Bobby is his helper; and Teach is a very small time crook. The title refers to a valuable American buffalo nickel. Donny doesn't really know the real value of the nickel that has been bought from him. A crime is hatched to steal a coin collector's trove. Should another man, Fletcher, be included? Should they go in with a gun? These are real small time crooks who don't have a clue.
The absurdist dialogue involves inanity, non-sequiturs, and nonsense. Mamet is good at sussing out conversational rhythms and the way language is often only symbolic among friend, more evocative than communicative.
In one exchange Teach says, "According to me, yes, I am the person it's usually according to when I'm talking. Have you noticed this?" The play is as much about language as it is about the action of the play. The audience finds great comedy in the circumlocution of the absurdist dialogue. Listening to dumbbells arguing about nonsense can be very funny. It's sort of pointless, a lesson in futility.
As usual in plays things go awry toward the end. Much goes unspoken in this play, and the audience can draw inferences as to what happened offstage.
There are subtexts in the play. What did Bobby do while he was gone? Is there a relationship between Don and Bobby? Things slip out as these characters talk about seemingly straightforward matters. The shop set is unbelievably cluttered, yet the dialogue is simple and uncluttered.
When I first saw and heard the play performed, I thought it was riddled with profanity; now it seems quite tame. But worthy of a revival? It's a play that has little to convey and essentially goes nowhere. Count me out of the revival.
Give This Classic Play A Re-Release 13 août 2011
Par Dross24 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Movie tie-ins may be a necessary evil, but come now- why, 15 years after its uneventful release, are the miscast mugs of Dennis Franz and Dustin Hoffman still haunting this book cover? Why am I being told that it is "Now A Major Motion Picture?" I love Grove Press, and I thank them for keeping Mamet in print, but sometimes they perplex me.

Whatever the case- the play is an American classic, is a masterpiece of subtlety and characterization. I have never seen it in a theater- I can admit that the first read can leave you a little dumbfounded. It's slight, it's mundane. This is really Mamet at his most Pinterfied. But where Pinter was domestic, Mamet is professional, and this (with Glengarry and Speed-the-Plow) is among his best and most brilliant dissections of business relations, trust and betrayal. And at the end of the day, it's quite heartbreaking, actually.

There's a whole lot going on here. If you're a playwright, read it just to get a sense of how supple and modern the classical tragedy can be. It may well be Mamet's best. It is definitely an aesthetic and dramatic highpoint in American theater.
stark, harsh, broken American dreamers.. 24 mai 2007
Par Kerry O. Burns - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Mamet is one of America's finest playwrights while "American Buffalo" might not stand up to universal appeal as much as "Glengarry" or "Speed the Plow" I consider it one of his best works. The language and characters are not idealistic but harsh and real as the Chicago neighborhood it takes place in. Mamet writes of broken characters and the broken American dream, read the play then rent and watch the production starring Dustin Hoffman and Dennis Franz or go watch a local theatrical production when it's done right and done by good actors it is truly an American classic.
