Cinemascope: Phil Specter

Cinemascope is a regular blog post where I will share with you movies and TV shows I think are worth watching.

Released in 2013.

Plot line: The client-attorney relationship between legendary music producer Phil Spector and defense lawyer Linda Kenney Baden--who represented Spector during his first murder trial--is explored in this drama starring Oscar(R) winners Al Pacino and Helen Mirren.

I did not know much about Phil Spector - not about his successes as a music producer, or about his murder trials, but I found this a fascinating production by director David Mamet. Watching this is like watching a really good play, and the acting by Pacino and Mirren is superb.

You can see the trailer here. If you have yet to see it, this is a movie worth watching.
