9780802130280: House of Games (Mamet, David)

Playwright David Mamet's brilliant debut as a film director, House of Games is a psychological thriller in which a young woman psychiatrist falls prey to an elaborate and ingenious con game by one of her patients, who entraps her--with her own subconscious connivance--in a series of criminal escapades. It is a breathless roller-coaster ride of a movie that keeps springing one bizarre surprise after another, sustaining suspense with dazzling audacity. The unsuspecting audience is lured into a psychological and moral thicket of troubling implications, which bear the unmistakable imprint of Mamet's intensely personal vision. Here is the complete screenplay of House of Games, with many illustrations selected from the film and an introduction by the author recounting in candid detail his experience as a first-time director.

Review:

"[a] darkly comic script " --The Stage

...true but different, gripping but transparent, and full of genuine stage thrills. It s a great show, very funny... It works, in fact, as a sort of black farce, and is given a new tone of absurdity that is purely theatrical. --whatsonstage.com
