  • Z's rating of the film One-Trick Pony

    Interesting character study led by a low-key, sensitive and soulful performance by Paul Simon. How does a singer/songwriter stay true to his artistic ideals while maintaining a career in a rapidly changing, commercial marketplace? It's a song as old as the hills, but this film explores it intelligently with lots of nice detail and character development. Rip Torn is fantastic (as usual) as a mercenary record producer.
