Cert: 15 Year: 1992 Length: 124 mins
The second of our trilogy of films featuring Greta Scacchi, The Player sees Robert Altman and lead actors Tim Robbins and Miss Scacchi at their finest.
Griffin Mill (Robbins) is a Hollywood gatekeeper – anyone wanting to get their movie made needs to get it past him first. But when Griffin starts to receive death threats from someone he has ignored, the list of suspects is long.
Taking matters into his own hands leads to an inevitable downward spiral of consequences.

The Player is a smart movie, and a funny one. It is also absolutely of its time. After the savings and loan scandals, after junk bonds and stolen pension funds, here is a movie that uses Hollywood as a metaphor for the avarice of the 1980s. It is the movie The Bonfire of the Vanities wanted to be.
