There's a fine tradition of acerbic movies that skewer Hollywood: Think "Sunset Boulevard," "The Player" and "What Just Happened," to name a few. The dark-humored "Trust Me" is a worthy addition to the list.

There's certainly humor running through writer-director-star Clark Gregg's "Trust Me," the tale of an inept agent for child actors; it's just that not all of it feels intentional.

As long as Gregg, as both actor and director, is anatomizing the Hollywood viper pit, Trust Me rings true.

As the movie picks up speed and undergoes sudden, confusing plot reversals, it loses its satirical edge.

"Trust Me" contains so much terrific writing, acting and observation that it becomes a bit easier to forgive writer-director-star Clark Gregg when his ambitions best him during the movie's convoluted last third.

As Trust Me gets twistier and more serious, it also veers toward pity for its central character (which reads as self-pity for the filmmaker, fairly or not).

This small film's momentum ... like the childhood career of its protagonist - gradually sputters.

A sometimes sharp-toothed look at the Machiavellian machinations of the modern film industry ...

The showbiz yarn is highly entertaining until it all but derails.
