Waiting for Lefty
Odets was responsible for co-writing one of my all-time favorite movies. After hearing the snappy yet vile dialogue in that, I grew curious in Odets' other works outside of Hollywood.
Waiting for Lefty revolves around cab drivers planning a strike. This was written when strikes were becoming commonplace for New York City. Do I have a problem with that? Not at all.
The only thing I didn't like about Waiting for Lefty was that each act would flip flop between characters that had no real connection. It got a bit confusing. But still, I loved Odets' way of words.
My Rating: ****
