Summary

Mike Figgis has always been intrigued by the workings of the Hollywood System. As he progressed from his acclaimed US debut Internal Affairs, through hellish studio wrangles on Mr. Jones, to Oscar-laurelled success with Leaving Las Vegas, Figgis always wanted to find a way to document the mores of the Hollywood industry, before it could swallow him whole. For Projections, he accepted an invitation to return to LA in late 1998 and create just such a document. In conversation with established players such as Mel Gibson, Jodie Foster and Jerry Bruckheimer, plus ascending talents such as Salma Hayek and Paul Thomas Anderson, Figgis paints a refreshingly honest but unmistakably dark portrait of an industry where money does more than talk.
