A Hollywood studio executive with a shaky moral compass (Tim Robbins) finds himself caught up in a criminal situation that would be right at home in one of his movie projects in this biting industry satire from director Robert Altman (Nashville, M*A*S*H, Short Cuts, Gosford Park). Written by Michael Tolkin, based upon his novel, The Player mixes elements of film noir with sly insider comedy. It functions as both a nifty stylish murder story and a commentary on its own making, and is stocked with a heroic supporting cast (Peter Gallagher, Whoopi Goldberg, Greta Scacchi, Dean Stockwell, Fred Ward) and a lineup of star cameos that make for an astonishing Hollywood who’s who. This complexly woven grand entertainment, which kicks off with one of American cinema’s most audacious and acclaimed opening shots, was the film that marked Altman’s triumphant commercial comeback in the early 1990s.
