A scathing satire on the film industry, “The Player” is based on a novel of the same name. Tim Robbins plays a studio executive who is receiving death threats from a writer whose work he rejected, though he isn’t sure which writer it is. The film opens with an unforgettable eight-minute-long tracking shot.
