The Player

Yesterday my lovely bride picked up The Player from the video store.
It’s an unusual film, in that it self-consciously bucks Hollywood
conventions, all the while making little jabs at the studio system and
California life, but featured more cameos from big name stars than just
about any film I’ve ever seen. My favorite part was watching Lyle Lovett
lurk around being creepy and odd, but ultimately it seems a bit too much
like a Hollywood in-joke to be totally enjoyable for the rest of the world.
