Phil Spector Reviews
(Full review TBD)
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.
