Albert Brooks’ LOST IN AMERICA
(R, 1985, 91 min)

In this hysterical satire of Reagan-era values, written and directed by Albert Brooks, a successful Los Angeles advertising executive (Brooks) and his wife (Julie Hagerty) decide to quit their jobs, buy a Winnebago, and follow their Easy Rider fantasies of freedom and the open road. When a stop in Las Vegas nearly derails their plans, they're forced to come to terms with their own limitations and those of the American dream.

David Mamet’s GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS
(R, 1992, 100 min)

When an executive «motivator» (Alec Baldwin) demands a sales contest among the agents in the cramped office, the stakes are critically high: any agent who fails to meet his quota of sales «leads» will lose their job. This intense ultimatum is a boon for the office superstar (Al Pacino), but a once-successful salesman (Jack Lemmon) now finds himself clinging nervously to faded glory. Political and personal rivalries erupt under pressure when the other agents (Alan Arkin, Ed Harris) suspect the office manager of foul play.
