This film is an acting tour de force showcasing the talented Kevin Spacey and Frank Whaley. It is a taut, tense, thriller which shows the dark side of what it takes to get to the top in Hollywood and the wreckage left in the wake of those ends. The real genius lies in the meticulously documented incremental compromises Frank Whaley's character makes along the way which lead to the utter degradation of his soul and his dreams. This is a powerful and disturbing film that gets under your skin.
