The Big Picture
Hollywood is the satiric target of this directorial debut by actor-writer Christopher Guest. Kevin Bacon plays a "boy wonder" director whose willingness to compromise his ideals allows him to thrive in Tinseltown. His corruption begins when his first project, a black-and-white experimental film, is distorted beyond recognition into a color, big-budget "youth trip." A prolonged inside joke with tons of unbilled celebrity cameos.
