A very good movie

11 years, 9 months ago at Jan 7 13:58
I already saw this movie but since it was a while back, I was really eager to check it out again. I have to admit that I still have to check most of Robert Altman’s older movies but from all the movies I have seen directed by this master so far, it remains by far my favourite one. It seems to be a little bit forgotten nowadays but I think it’s a shame because it is actually quite a spellbindin... read more

A studio script screener gets on the bad side of a writer by not accepting his script. The writer is sending him threatening postcards. The screener tries to identify the writer in order to pay him off so he'll be left alone, and then in a case of mistaken identity gone awry, he accidentally gives the writer solid ammunition for blackmail. This plot is written on a backdrop of sleazy Hollywood deals and several subplots involving the politics of the industry.

Movies I Watched in February 2022 (26 movies items)

" Date: 2/4/2022 Viewed: HBO Max Re-Watch Note: Because it was the 30th anniversary of The Player this year, I decided to watch it again. The Player is still a fantastic film, even after 30 years. I enjoy the inventive story, which is a satire of modern-day Hollywood. The film is a dark comedy that shows how people in Hollywood stab each other in the back. The film itself is a real blast, with several hilarious moments. It's also entertaining to see how the main character (played by Tim Robbin"

"First viewing - Mar. 12th So first off it's kinda weird seeing Tim Robbins playing someone other than himself when a host of other famous actors are playing themselves. I'm guessing they needed one major actor for his role just to help get the film produced, but it still messed with me. It's a film I found rather interesting and fairly entertaining, but also kind of a mess in some aspects. It's all very meta, but I don't know that that approach works as well as they'd intended. I don't know. I"
