Hammerman Ikon

Hammerman Ikon Film Guide

House of Games
Director: David Mamet
Cast: Lindsay Crouse, Joe Mantegna, Mike Nussbaum, Lilia Skala, Ricky Jay

David Mamet's directorial debut is probably his finest film. This is a sharply written and cleverly constructed con drama. Lindsay Crouse is brilliant as a self-assured female psychiatrist who doesn't take humiliation very well.
