TRUST Trivia: David Mamet

In 2007, Pulitzer Prize-winning writer and director David Mamet – creator of “Glengarry Glen Ross” and father to Zosia Mamet, a.k.a. Shoshana Shapiro on HBO’s “Girls” – directed a pair of spots for the then new Ford Edge. The two ads, entitled “Faster Than a BMW X5” and “Quieter Than a Lexus” respectively, play on Mamet’s signature slick-but-tough writing style (remember, “coffee’s for closers”), imbuing them with a distinct Neo-Noir oeuvre, and are reminiscent of one of Mamet’s best films, the car-chase crime thriller “Ronin.” Check them both out below.
