3/4 

Subversive razor edge satire about the shallow aspects of Hollywood. The film's point of interest never gets lost among the story or surplus amount of star cameos. The ending leaves a perfectly cynical and meta coda to the film that provided a great final laugh.

This is another of Robert Altman's more coherent films - a snarky and on-point satire of the film industry. For those who understand the industry, there are some great in-jokes, but, even for those who don't, the film works as a strong domestic thriller with some superb acting from an ensemble cast.

Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) is a studio executive who dates Editor Bonnie Sherow (Cynthia Stevenson) and receives threatening postcards. Mill suspects disgruntled writer is David Kahane (Vincent D’Onofrio) and talks to his girlfriend June Gudmundsdottir (Greta Scacchi). David and Griffin converse in a bar after coming from a theater where The Bicycle Thief was shown. A murder occurs because tempers fly. The murderer walks away with possible evidence. Griffin is envious of Larry Levy (Peter Gallagher), who feels his job is in jeopardy. Detectives Avery (Whoopi Goldberg) and DeLongpre (Lyle Lovett) investigate Mill.

Screenplay was refreshing and the lines were alright: June – “Life’s too short.” Griffin –“Keep it to yourself.” “I would like to start over.” Not that funny but t...
