Phil Spector Reviews
Inevitably the film deals with the prejudices for and against celebrity and the film itself, as do all the characters and you/me as the audience.
Even the reviewers here on Rotten Tomatoes do it.
Pacino shows Spector as a barely sane has been whose live seems as mysterious to him as it does to us. A performance of operatic overstatement surrounded by a case with buckets of circumstantial evidence and only one witness.
The victim is certainly absent from the film.
In many ways this is a slight made for TV movie, but it is mesmerising at the same time.
See it if you can.
Thrilled with the film and it was simply marvelous. The acting by Al Pacino (Phil Spector) and Mirren (attorney Linda Baden) were extremely convincing. The writing is also excellent.
"This movie is essential viewing for everyone in the media and the world who are ignorant to what is happening to the great Woody Allen. The thing is, society skipped basic ethics and have gone straight to dark-age thinking. Woody and Phil are guilty and look, just outside the window, see it? It's a pig with wings and it's not a Pink Floyd prank.
