Hollywood in Hollywood about Hollywood
Strange feeling for a French person to sit at a Hollywood movie theater
to watch a movie about Hollywood. People around me laughed more than me
because, presumably, the joke touches a lot of local nerves. The story
is introduced by a score resembling the Nino Rota of "La Dolce Vita"
but the similarities with "La Dolce Vita" end there. There is nothing
new here other than Robert De Niro's performance, the first in a long
time in which there is a notable commitment. I found the characters
tiresome and far too familiar. I couldn't care less about any of them.
The predicament of De Niro's Ben (a thinly veiled producer, writer Art
Linson) left me cold. Living the times we're living, to concern myself
with this was too much to ask..

sadrayi watch The Hawk Is Dying movie
what just happened has great actors.
sadrayi watch Alien Trespass movie
i added before..
The good point = DeNiro actually acts
For the first time in 10 years, Robert DeNiro proved that he can still
act and he is not just a caricature from the Godfather and Good Fellas.
Clearly, The Player still ranks as the best Hollywood insider flick.
This film does do a decent job of summarizing Hollywood business.
Nobody comes across as evil.
There are brief, infrequent funny moments.
The movie itself is a bit slow, with totally wasted cameos from Bruce
Willis and John Turturro (who is becoming rapidly annoying). Both parts
should have been deleted and were a total waste. Stereotypes abound
with wealthy Israeli financiers, drugged out artist directors mean
spirited but bright female studio bosses, writers with crazy ideas.
Very nice cameos from Sean Penn and Robin Wright Penn and Kristen
If you like Hollywood insider movies, I think you will find the movie
somewhat enjoyable. Not great but not bad..
