[It's] supposed to be scathing, but the pleasure it affords is like what you get from watching the Oscars: celebrity spotting and in-jokes.
I partly agree with Jonathan since the Oscars are indeed very celebrity spotting and not that amusing. But I do think that Altman was very brave by doing it anyway and he delivered a good peice of satire and that is not something you can say about the Oscars. I wish that the Oscars were as amusing as the Player is.

Wow, is Jonathan Rosenbaum wrong about this one. This is a very deep movie that makes the act of making a movie explicit. It seems that Rosenbaum has a personal problem with Robert Altman. I will officially never give creedance (sp?) to anything this critic ever says again.

He has no personal problem, that is ridiculous. He loved McCabe & Mrs. Miller.
