I am surprised about the number of people who play themselves, or seem too. The film is a critique of the way Hollywood operates and the effects of fame on an individual, along with several other themes. instead of being sentimental bullshit/whiny musical type that I was kinda of expecting, it was hard hitting film noir. Snappy witty dialogue, very good direction and muse-en-scene. Overall defiantly worth the praise it receives.
