The Spanish Prisoner
Our next Rialto Recommends is from playwright turned filmmaker David Mamet. THE SPANISH PRISONER stars Steve Martin, Ben Gazzara, and Campbell Scott. An inventor of a secret process suddenly finds himself alone as both his friends and the corporation he works for turn against him. Can he trust the FBI? Can he trust his girl? There's no telling; he's just become the victim of the oldest con game in the book: the 'Spanish Prisoner'! The Los Angeles Times proclaimed "Mamet brings more than a decade's worth of filmmaking experience to his latest project, and his skill as a director has improved considerably." While Roger Ebert said "It rolls its sleeves above its elbows to show it has no hidden cards, and then produces them out of thin air." THE SPANISH PRISONER is streaming Fubo, ShowTime, and DirectTV or is available to rent for a modest fee from Amazon HERE.
