Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) is a studio executive who is responsible for accepting or rejecting the pitches and scripts for potential feature films. His life changes when he finds himself on the receiving end of vicious threats for apparently rejecting a script. Griffin tries desperately to identify the threatening writer in order to pay him off and quickly get back to his normal life, because in Hollywood, there’s always another person to take your place. This plot is written on a backdrop of sleazy Hollywood deals and several subplots involving the politics of the industry. A clever satire from acclaimed director Robert Altman, The Player was a both a critical and commercial success when released in 1992. There are some great classic and vintage movie posters seen decorating the wall of the many studio offices.Read more »
