The Player (1992)
Popeye, came correct with this cameo-heavy thriller/comedy/noir. Tim Robbins plays a studio executive who, when not deciding whether to greenlight gems like The Graduate II, gets caught up in all manner of seedy intrigue. I remember this one as being almost too clever and subversive to be believed, but I wonder how well it has aged? The business of movie making has changed so much in the past, gulp, almost twenty years, will the script still keep its hyper-modern edge? Will that Cher cameo carry the same charge? Stay tuned!
