first half is fun, energetic and builds nicely with several interesting threads. Philip Seymour Hoffman and William H Macy are standouts, but also accompanied by light hearted support from the likes of Alec Baldwin and Sarah Jessica Parker. for me, the second half throws that away and becomes bogged down in annoying distracting plotlines and poor acting. The writing style which is snappy doesn't have the lasting depth to sustain it. I became really fed up with this.
If you want to watch a film which really captures the chaos and magic of filmmaking whilst having a unique style and lasting impression, watch The Stunt Man (1980).
David Mamet's comedy about filming a movie in a small town is deliciously funny in a satirical, understated way, where many of the actors get to make fun of themselves.
Great and absolutely hilarious
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
