Critic Reviews of "The Player"Chicago ReaderApril 28, 2008
[It's] supposed to be scathing, but the pleasure it affords is like what you get from watching the Oscars: celebrity spotting and in-jokes.VarietyApril 28, 2008
Mercilessly satiric yet good-natured, this enormously entertaining slam dunk quite possibly is the most resonant Hollywood saga since the days of Sunset Blvd. and The Bad and the Beautiful.Chicago Sun-TimesOctober 23, 2004
A movie about today's Hollywood -- hilarious and heartless in about equal measure, and often at the same time.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Altman's most subversive message here is not that it's possible to get away with murder in Hollywood, but that the most grievous sin, in Hollywood terms anyway, is to make a film that flops.Rolling StoneJune 06, 2001
[Altman] sticks it to every target, himself and us included, with a wicked zest that hurts only when you laugh.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
The Player is a rare commodity. It's brilliant and a guilty pleasure.Common Sense MediaNovember 22, 2016
Noir masterpiece has nudity, lots of strong language.National ReviewNovember 04, 2016
The Player, which Altman made after years of struggle, with all Hollywood fascination worn away, is Altman's dour version of Dante's Inferno. His satire forces us to realize the obscenity of Clinton-era corruption - once again.Madison MovieJune 10, 2016
In "The Player," Altman creates a scathing satire of Hollywood - and then lets his satire itself gets seduced by Hollywood schmaltz. Because what better way to show how seductive it is?Q Network Film DeskJune 08, 2016
Altman knew Hollywood, but The Player casts a much wider net by allowing the movie industry to stand in for the shark-eat-shark nature of modern business in generalCreative LoafingJune 05, 2016
One of the great motion pictures of the 1990s.CraveOnlineJune 03, 2016
Altman was making a sour, salient, cynical, and passionate point about how artistry and edge had been drained from Hollywood. By 1992, the suits were in charge.
