It seems like "meta" is perpetually in fashion. Heck, just last weekend the extremely self-aware horror film Cabin in the Woods came out. As this Moviefone column points out, this year is also the 20th anniversary of Robert Altman's The Player.
When I started working in Hollywood, I quickly came to the realization that depictions of the business in projects like The Player and Entourage are somehow simultanously exaggerated and pretty darn close to the mark. Yeah, that's an impossibility - but what I really mean is that Entourage might not be how the business IS, but it's often somewhere between how the culture feels, and how the players see themselves.
So what's your favorite "insider" look at Hollywood?
