Robert Wuhl stars as a movie director who's got integrity, vision and a serious script, but no career. Martin Landau is a sleazy producer who introduces Wuhl to De Niro, Danny Aiello and Eli Wallach - three guys with money who are willing to invest in the movie. But with one catch: each one wants his girlfriend to be the star. Putting the deal together and keeping the mistress happy turns into a hilarious expose of the truth about Hollywood.

A Hollywood studio executive with a shaky moral compass (Tim Robbins) finds himself caught up in a criminal situation that would be right at home in one of his movie projects, in this biting industry satire from Robert Altman. Mixing elements of film noir with sly insider comedy, The Player functions as both a nifty stylish murder story and a commentary on its own making, and it is stocked with a heroic supporting cast and a lineup of star cameos that make for an astonishing Hollywood who's who.
