I'm currently reading Down and Dirty Pictures by Peter Biskind (the Easy Riders, Raging Bulls guy) which details the independent movie scene in the 1990s. It's mostly centred on Miramax, but there's a lot of stuff about the Sundance Festival and Robert Redford's film community. It doesn't paint a particularly kind picture of Redford, but the stuff surrounding the creation of Quiz Show fascinated m... read more

Based on Richard Goodwin's book Remembering America, this film pushes the message that in its infancy, Television was to entertain first, sell product and then inform. Thanks to lack of oversight and regulation, companies soon cottoned on to the massive earning potential of the medium.

It's worth remembering that Goodwin was Kennedy's (and later Johnson's) speechwriter so his recoll... read more

Quiz Show is a riveting film about the television quiz show scandal in the 1950s. This thought-provoking drama offers an opportunity to explore the decline of morality, the inviolability of corporate power, and the unstoppable influence of television on the psyche and soul of America.

A Complete Review of Robert Redford's work (9 movies items)

" Cast : Ralph Fiennes, John Turturro, Mira Sorvino, Martin Scorsese, Barry Levinson, Ethan Hawke What was it about? A young lawyer, Richard Goodwin, investigates a potentially fixed game show. Charles Van Doren, a big time show winner, is under Goodwin's investigation. My two cents: Even though Robert Redford never managed to become a major director, I always had a weak spot for this work and I think this flick was probably the best one he directed. Indeed, I thought it was a very subtle an"

"This drama is mostly riveting and it has an interesting story to tell. It's a well-directed movie by Robert Redford. The acting is great by everybody. My only problem is this movie runs a little too long and it seems stale at some points. It's based on a true story. In 1958, NBC started a game show craze especially with their hit show 21. When champion Herb Stampel is kicked out and replaced by the popular Charles Van Doren, NBC comes under fire as it's revealed that the champions may have been "

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: February (18 movies items)

"First viewing - Feb. 17th I remember this being nominated for a bunch of awards back when it came out, but at the time it didn't seem like a film I'd care much for. Now that I'm older I thought I'd give it a fair chance, and I can now see why it got such accolades. The acting is very impressive, and it tells an interesting story from TV history. It gains value from treating its characters honestly for the most part, as well as from its ending. I wouldn't say I fell in love with it, but it's wor"

30 From 94: My Favorite Films From 1994 (30 movies items)

"There was a time when TV had gameshows that actually rewarded people for actually being smart. Nowadays, whether it be with quiz shows that an average junior high schooler could pass or through so-called reality shows, most TV programs seem to reward people for being dumb. John Turturro turns in, IMO, his best performance as a voice for the craggy intellectual type of the time, who is smart enough to realize and yet does not want to accept that the visual medium of television has crossed ove"
