In David Mamet's cinema, nothing is as it seems - so you better know what you're
looking for. Unfortunately, the protagonist of Mamet's nightmarish urban odyssey
Homicide, inner-city police detective Bobby Gold (Joe Mantegna), is as bewildered
about who he is as who (or what) he's after. Gold's investigation, following the murder
of an elderly Jewish candy-shop owner, leads him down a path of obscure encounters and
clues, to a profound reckoning with his own identity. Filled with Mamet's trademark
verbal play and featuring standout supporting performances from William H. Macy, Ving
Rhames, and Rebecca Pidgeon, Homicide is a taut, rich work from a true American original.
