Mamet miscellanea

"In press notes so long, detailed, and repetitive they could only have been supervised by Mamet himself, the filmmaker is identified as a longtime student of, and purple belt in, jujitsu."

-from J. Hoberman's review of David Mamet's film, Redbelt. A martial arts film.

Anyone seen it?

I don't do movies, but check out the interview with Mamet on Elvis Mitchell's The Treatment on KCRW. It will give you background on the jujitsu.

Mamet's recent interview on Tavis Smiley's TV show--talk about odd pairings--was also devoted almost exclusively to jujitsu.
