The Player

Tim Robbins in The Player (Robert Altman, 1991)

With Hollywood abuse scandals stealing headlines away from Washington, it seems like Warwick Public Library really lucked out when planning its three-week Hollywood Bites Itself film series, which concludes this week with Robert Altman’s 1992 satire The Player. Tim Robbins play a sinister movie executive that kills a guy – the wrong guy – after an angry writer begins sending him death threats. The detectives on his trail include Whoopi Goldberg and Lyle Lovett, while half of Hollywood showed up for cameos – Altman films often have famous people playing themselves, but this one’s got Bruce Willis, Julia Roberts, Harry Belafonte, Lily Tomlin, Cher, Karen Black, and literally dozens of others.
