Description by Wikipedia

The Player is a 1992 American satirical comedy film directed by Robert Altman from a screenplay by Michael Tolkin based on his own 1988 novel of the same name. It is the story of Hollywood film studio executive Griffin Mill (Tim Robbins) who murders an aspiring screenwriter he believes is sending him death threats.

The Player has many film references and Hollywood insider jokes, with sixty-five Hollywood celebrities agreeing to make cameo appearances in the film. Altman stated, "It is a very mild satire," offending no one.
