I know this was a work of "Fiction", but it did give me a whole new view of Phil Spector. Al Pacino always delivers as does Helen Mirren. I was glued to the screen the whole time. Worth a watch.
DAVID MAMET WANTED TO BE AN ACTOR; instead, he had to be a masterful writer and director..dam'th'luck..no matter what the subject matter, HE MAKES FINE FLICKS..there's always more to 'em than initially meets the eye..check out these masterpieces - RONIN / SPARTAN / HEIST / SPANISH PRISONER / THE EDGE...you can find more listed on imdb.
David Mamet writes and directs a story inspired by the Phil Spector murder case. It centers around Phil Spector, legendary music producer (played by Al Pacino) and Linda Baden, one of his defense lawyers (played by Helen Mirren) from the first murder trial. Mamet's main focus is on character development, and his dialogue is always spot-on and delivered well by these two legendary actors. No doubt this film will cause controversy, because it conveys much reasonable doubt on whether or not the death was murder or accidental. But Mamet here is concentrating on deeper truths about the characters themselves, how we look at the world, how we shape the narrative of the events of or lives and how the world judges based on appearances. I would love to hear what others thought of the film. 9/10
