    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBWait a minute Michael Tolkin Am I reading a novel published as part of the 1980s Vintage Contemporaries series or a movie script in the form of a novel Since this is a story of Griffin Mill a bigtime studio power player within the Hollywood movie industry it is hard to tell I sense the best way to write a review is to let the glitz and glamour sparkle and do a top 10 Tinseltown countdown Here goes10 The set This is Hollywo

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBSo this is another book that I had to read for class the final one of the semester in fact and I actually really enjoyed it To me it was such an interesting read because of how utterly insane the main character was The ending too was perfect for what the book was trying to say with its satire I can't wait to watch the movie I don't really know why this isn't five stars; I liked everything about the book but that doesn't mean it was life changing or anything ya know

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBRead this about 21 years ago and remembered liking it but it was through the prism of the movie I recently rewatched the movie and it made me want to go back to the source As I remembered the two are mostly alike but the book obviously affords a closer look inside Griffin’s mind Since I’m two decades older I was offended by Griffin’s contempt for cinephiles and scared about how I can relate to him in other ways now Aside from a

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBThe Player is one of my favorite films and probably one of Robert Altman's best films I've read the screenplay for college back in 1994 so was curious to read the book that inspired the film Interestingly Michael Tolkin wrote both the book and the screenplay and produced the filmWith Tolkin having worked on both versions of The Player it is in

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBFor those of you who have never seen the movie or read The Player this book is a real delight for fans of Hollywood or murder suspense stories Fortunately I saw the movie so many years ago that I couldn't remember anything after the first actTo me what makes the book work is how Tolkin gets into his protagonist's head and presents his paranoia and justification for committing a heinous crime What makes Griffin Mill's crime most despicable isn't the act itself but the aftermath If there was ever a yuppie who should burn in hell it's MillBy dropping names the book does a wonderful job keeping up with contemporary Hollywood of the late 80s Not in comparison to the film where director Altman had access to many iconic stars who appear sometimes in very insignificant ways

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBI've never seen the movie version of Michael Tolkin's 'The Player' but I enjoyed the novel very much The story follows ambitious Hollywood executive Griffin Mill as he deals with the conseuences of his let's call it cutthroat business style Hollywood and the movie business in this novel is symbolic of the vacuous obsession with money and image where the only real winners are the executives who stanch creativity to make a buck While that thought can certainly be applied

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBA good LA read About the movie business and well known enough I won't summarize I have to say that this is the sort of culture many people told me to expect here Cynical calculating superficial etc My experience in LA has been much different Hah a long story What this DOES directly remind me of is what I saw in the real estate business in New York For starters I am thinking that BE Ellis lifted the basics of this character Griffin Mills to make Patrick Bateman from American Psycho

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBReaders coming to this book after seeing the film version are there any other kind will find a main character Griffin Mill who is far deliberate in his crimes than what Tim Robbins played in the Robert Altman movie They will also find a stronger interior dimension Not surprising where most novels into films are concerned perhaps but I was frankly surprised that Tolkin mostly a screenwriter by trade had it in him Having said that I think it was in the film version that Tolkin's story found itself The book is good; the movie is better

    Paperbackä The Player PDF ì player book, The Player ePUBBiting Hollywood satire not uite the tour de force of the author's Among the Dead Perhaps my lone complaint is that very bit of uerulousness I've scoffed at so many times before that there are no appealing characters Tolkien refuses to drum up a bit of sympathy for anyone in the cast who are all infected with the superficiality and vanity of the business self hating sell out screenwriters scads of yes men and the eponymous producer
