Phil Spector (2013) Rated TV-MA

A film that centers on the relationship between Phil Spector and his lawyer, Linda Kenney Baden, during the trial of the murder of Lana Clarkson. Starring Al Pacino, Helen Mirren, and Jeffrey Tambor.

It’s not the best film based on a true story because it takes on the perceived notions that people have about others. The film has great acting with Pacino and Mirren taking the title roles, but the script leaves much to be desired. It isn’t just about the trial – it shows the relationship between Spector and his lawyer. It also tries to explain the craziness of Spector before and during the trial. The one thing the film has going for it is the look at the music industry genius that Spector was. I thought the script was lacking, but it was still an interesting watch, making it worth it.
