During a Hollywood party, Marlon Brando and Montgomery Clift compete to prove who is the greatest actor – and end up using James Dean as a pawn in their game of psychological oneupmanship.
As Leon Davis said. How many viewers today are aware of the importance of these actors. Marlon Brando? Probably. James Dean? Maybe. Montgomery Clift? Doubtful.
And there’s nothing important at stake. It’s an exercise in celebrity vanity by Brando and Clift. Who cares about who wins? Why should anyone care?
Agreed – with everyone’s points.
It doesn’t quite turn me on either.
If I remember correctly – I wanted to do something a bit like SLEUTH and WHOSE AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF. My thing would rely on three people in a room. Fine for a 10 page short (which it was back in 2007) but for a feature film – perhaps not.
