Phil Spector (2013)
Critic Consensus: Its top-shelf script and terrific cast ensure that it's always watchable, but Phil Spector fails to provide truly compelling drama.

Critic Reviews for Phil Spector
Even with a Mamet screenplay and actors like Mr. Pacino and Ms. Mirren there is not much anyone can do to make the audience care.
It's better than most films of its kind, even as it remains unsatisfying as historical re-creation, philosophical meditation or pure drama.
Pacino and Mirren's teamwork keeps Phil Spector watchable even when it's dousing itself in dramatic ethanol and lighting a match.
The film is an engrossing drama, with a dazzling performance by Al Pacino in the title role.
It's an insidious whitewash of a convicted killer and an infamous smear of his victim. It's a shame on all involved.
Audience Reviews for Phil Spector
al pacino always does good in the tv movies... he knows how to do it... like back in you don't know jack...
Controversies on what's fact and fiction aside, the Mamet, Pacino and Mirren combo is definitely an interesting one to watch. Featuring excellent performances and an even better collection of wigs, this is one of HBO Films most controversial releases to date even if it's not one of their most compelling. Great use of the music Spector has made his fortune on too!
Try's to make spector look more sympathetic. Seems like half the reason he got convicted was for being stupid and a tool. Pacino give a very "angels in america" performance. I know nothing of this case and i don't know if that helps or hurts my opinion.
