As talented as he is in front of the camera Robert Redford is infinitely more talented behind it. With "Quiz Show" Redford manages to create an incredibly engrossing and compelling film. This film has an incredible cast with both Ralph Fiennes and John Turturro giving memorable performances. The real treat for me was seeing Martin Scorsese pop up in a supporting role!
Lo mejor de "Quiz show" no tiene nada que ver con la reivindicación o el lado moralista del filme, sino más bien el lado real y cínico que se asoma al cierre. Es la reflexión sobre las dinámicas del espectáculo y cómo el espectador termina pasando por encima de cualquier discurso judicial o de redención. Es Fiennes aplastado en público, Turturro reclamando a la satanización mediática y la impunidad a los culpables.
Perhaps not as venomous as other films that have taken an insider’s view on the world of television this is nonetheless an entertaining drama, with an excellent screenplay featuring strong performances from a perfect cast. The idea of underhand and unseen medial manipulation may seem a little naïve to a modern audience, but Quiz Show perfectly captures the reactions this caused in the 1950’s. A great film.
I love Forrest Gump. I love Pulp Fiction. But I wouldn't say Quiz Show it better. It's a fantastic movie and story that needed to be told. But the last 15min, I don't know, I guess just lost my captivation with it. I think they could of done a better job telling the ending.
