SPECIAL EFFECTS
1984, Park Circus/MGM, 106 min, USA, Dir: Larry Cohen

Past-his-prime director Chris Neville (a very effective Eric Bogosian) kills an actress at his home while cameras roll; turning the footage into a movie, he casts the woman’s boyfriend in a role in order to frame him for the deed. Zoë Lund (MS. 45) shines in a dual role that looks at Hollywood with both allure and dread.
