Alec Baldwin Doesn't Act, He Lives

In the wake of all the Alec Baldwin cursing out his child hubbub, this great scene from Glengarry Glen Ross carries a little more subtext. And subtext becomes just text at the 4:37 mark when he says, "Good father? Fuck you! Go home and play with your kids!" and so on and so forth.

Also, if you haven't seen this movie your life is incomplete until you do.


  1. Greatest scene Baldwin has ever acted in. In college, I could recite this entire scene line by line.

  2. This kind of shit is EXACTLY I will never work in sales (especially cold-call oriented sales) again (and believe me, I have tried).

    I need to be able to use my brain and analyze and not just coerce people into buying things, doing whatever I have to to close a deal. Moreover, I might have eventually cursed out Alec Baldwin before leaving.

    Oh my god, that self-helpy stuff he was telling his duaghter was from his movie? Scary shit, that.

  4. Regardless of the source, Spawn of Kim needs a good a-- whoopping. Children of divorce are supposed to manipulate their parents, but the girl took it too far. Vindictive, just like her mama.
