The Player: Part One

Movie posters in Robert Altman's The Player (1992).

Altman's film is a flawless blend of satire, black comedy, thriller and neo-noir centered around the dirty politics of a modern Hollywood movie studio. The framed movie posters that line the walls and fill the screen at times almost become characters themselves.

Highly Dangerous (1950); Danger Zone (1951); Monsieur Fabre (1951); The Mysterians/Prisonnières des Martiens (1957); Mon oncle d'Amérique (1980); Gone with the Wind/Autant en emporte le vent (1939); Notorious (1946); Rear Window (1954); Sunset Blvd. (1950)
