Jimmy Hollywood: Directed by Barry Levinson. With Joe Pesci, Christian Slater, Victoria Abril, Jason Beghe. A failing actor living in crime infested Los Angeles, frustrated with his career, decides to take the law into his own hands, and becomes the leader of a mock-vigilante group that videotapes criminals and turns them over to the police.

“If you have ever lived in LA, you may have started to wonder what ever happened to the Hollywood of glamour, romance and dreams. This movie takes on that question, and with a dynamite duo of Joe Pesci and Victoria Abril doing the honors (Christian Slater is there too, but his part is that of a spaced-out guy, so he does not have too much to add). Its funny, visually interesting, the plot moves along at a good clip, and it has lots of nice small touches. I definitely think it is worth your while, if you have ever lived in LA, or visited Hollywood, or had that sinking feeling of driving through the intersection of Hollywood and Vine. Victoria Abril is terrific and Joe Pesci is relentless, and hilarious with his blond hair.”
