It felt more like a stage play, in vein of Glengarry Glen Ross, which is actually not a bad comparison - even thematically. But what I mean by that is that, that film has essentially the same kind of dialogue driven scenes, and the same kind of pacing. Another comparison to be made is something I saw on IMDb where I saw someone mention it feels like a violent version of a Sidney Lumet film - and I agree with that.
Yeah I also thought it seemed like a play, similiar to Glengarry, but I actually enjoyed this more. Also I don't think any one was saying the film was influenced by Tarantino, just drawing similarities
. This is definitly a film that stands on its own. Gordon says it better in the post above me
