final blog post

Posted on April 16, 2018

It would be easier for me to address my thoughts on the second act if i go in chronological order.  Starting with the setting.

Act two opens on the office evidently broken in to, which makes me believe that moss had Aaronow break in and steal the leads like he said he would.  I also want to pay attention to what was stolen. Leads, Contracts, and the telephones. The leads were a given, moss already announced that he’d be stealing the leads to give them to the competitors, however, the contract and telephones were not part of the original deal.  I’m going to assume that the contracts were taken to knock roma off the board and the telephone theft played into the idea of communication and power. If the office isnt able to call out, and talk to people, they are no longer the ones fucking but now they have been fucked.  

 

Next, Aaranow’s conversation with roma.  I definitely thought that Aaranow would have cracked under pressure after the tender words Roma bestowed upon him.  It only made me think, was Roma genuinely a nice person, or was he just selling himself again.

 

NEXT, WHAT MADE ME CRINGE, SO. HARD.

When lingk pulled up outside i knew exactly what he was coming to do.  I knew that he was coming to cancel the sale, especially when williamson set us up so beautifully by telling Levene that his sale was going to close.  Which brings me up to a very important question. Whyy is levene talked over and discredited like he is a child. He is literally given no power unless he is cursing williamson out, which he did beautifully in act 2.

 

LASTLY, I REFUSE TO BELIVE THAT LEVENE STOLE THE LEADS.  I REFUUSSSEEEE, HE IS AN INNOCENT CINNAMON ROLL!

Im sorry, im not going to lie, my heart wouldnt let me keep reading knowing that levene is getting arrested. Nope.

    I really enjoyed reading this blog. The scene between Lingk and Roma is pretty cringey and really hard to watch. I have to strongly disagree with your assessment of Levene though; he is not at all too good or too pure for this world. His moral orientation is right at home in that office; he just isn’t as good at it as some of the other players.
