    Here is a story of Hollywood studio life with a studio exec getting himself into a situation with a stalker. He ends up killing the man but needs the help of others to clear himself. Robert Altman directed this opening with a long ten minute shot of activities around the studio so we do get a glimpse of Hollywood at work. Some stars played themselves and others played characters in this fascinating story of movie life. When Hollywood looks at itself it is often with a distaste but really there are positives to see along the way.

    After his career heights in the '70's, Altman came back just as strong in the '90's with this Golden Globe- winning Hollywood satire. Robbins won the Golden Globe for Best Actor- Comedy/ Musical as a producer who kills a writer who he thought was sending him threats. Many real- life Hollywood personalities appear as cameo's, while Altman's Oscar- nominated direction focus' on the politics of Hollywood and common film techniques. Bitter and darkly- funny. I give it a 4.5/5.
