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

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.
