For the next movie spotlight, I’ve chosen the fairly recent “Phil Spector”, HBO’s controversial account on Phil Spector’s first trial. The film, directed by David Mamet and starring Al Pacino and Helen Mirren, was recently nominated for 11 Primetime Emmy Awards. You can read more about the film and its making on the career page. Production stills, on-set pictures and screencaptures have been added to the photo gallery and seven clips, including a featurette and scenes, can be watched in the video archive. Have you watched “Phil Spector”? Please share your thoughts in the comments.
