     February 4, 2013

Phil Spector produced some of the most beautiful music you’ve ever heard.  Spector is also a crazy man who was convicted of second-degree murder in 2003.  Since insane geniuses captivate us so, HBO understands that we need a Phil Spector biopic, and they went all out for Phil SpectorAl Pacino plays Spector.  Helen Mirren and Jeffrey Tambor co-star.  David Mamet wrote and directed the thing, for goodness’ sake.

HBO released the first full trailer, and I’m not sure what to make of it.  Part courtroom drama, part fever dream, the clip doesn’t connect so much as it disrupts.  But we can count on three things: 1) Awesome soundtrack, 2) Terrific wigs, and 3) Lines like, “The first time you got felt up, guess what: You were listening to one of my songs.”  With Pacino shouting Mamet dialogue, that may be enough for a fun viewing experience when Phil Spector premieres on March 24, regardless of quality.  Watch the trailer after the jump.

 

Guys, this isn’t even all the wigs.
