I like this one
This is a low budget film, there seems to be quite a few of them around, but it's a good one.
I won't provide a synopsis here because it's already been provided in the other reviews, but for me I simply love the subject matter of sales, and in particular telesales, as that has largely been my career. I've worked in places like is shown in the movie, alongside similar characters and I've even met bona fide Neal Blacks. To me, and it's shown in the movie, Sales does have its dark, greedy, selfish side, but it also has it's uplifting, inspiring, exciting and palpable side, and then main character is certainly very good at his game.
The story of this movie is weak and forgettable, the characters also, with the strong exception of Neal Blacks character which is very well acted, I do hope I get to see more of his films. But for me, given my similar experiences, I was really drawn into the setting and the overall environment of the movie, being a telesales room.
They could easily do a sequel to this movie, just make it bigger and brasher to get the audience sucked into the adrenalin rush of ringing that bell.
