As friendly a reminder as David Mamet can give:
(An internal memo from the CBS show “The Unit” which Mamet Executive Produced)

This is just to say that Nick Becker has a review of Post Grad on Tiny Mix Tapes and that you will most likely be seeing other reviews of other films by the same man on other occasions soon. Keep an eye out. I’m so proud.
For those of you who weren’t fortunate enough to be in the Southern California area this past Spring, here is a chance to take a peek at the latest masterpiece from one of the fastest growing voices in film.
