Cutler persuades Linda Kenney Baden to advise him. While the prosecution’s story is contradicted by facts in the case, there is convincing circumstantial evidence against Spector, not the least of which is his appearance. As Baden gradually takes over the defense, even as she is ill with pneumonia, she must find a way to introduce ballistic evidence in a dramatic enough fashion to plant doubt in the jury’s mind. Calling Specter to testify may be the only way to stage the evidence. She coaches him and rehearses him: can he (and she) pull it off?
Plot: A drama centered on the relationship between Phil Spector and defense attorney Linda Kenney Baden while the music business legend was on trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson.

Nice TV movie about the trial of record producer Phil Spector.
Al Pacino as Spector, Helen Mirren as the lawyer who represents him.
Good writing/directing by David Mamet, good acting. Nothing amazing, but it’s a good court drama that kept me interested throughout the movie.
As the remark in the beginning of the movie says, it’s fictionalized, and I treated the movie like that – some of the situations were obviously fictionalized (such as the trial rehearsal and the entire lawyers office, which seems more like a police station). I don’t know how accurate the details presented in the movie are, but if it’s half right then it raises some serious questions about the case.
Legendary record producer Phil Spector (Al Pacino) is accused of murdering Lana Clarkson. He insists that she killed herself. His defense attorney Bruce Cutler (Jeffrey Tambor) hires consultant Linda Kenney Baden (Helen Mirren) to help. The evidence is circumstantial but the most damning is probably Spector himself.
With David Mamet, Al Pacino, and Helen Mirren, I had greater hopes. Sure it’s just a TV movie but HBO likes to think of themselves as more than TV. It’s mostly about the behind the scenes of the defense during the trial as they cobble the evidence together. Without both sides, the movie feels like it’s missing something. Pacino is throwing a lot into his performance. Mirren is solid. The most interesting part for me is the opening text of NOT based on a true story. After that, some of the inside baseball looked interesting. The case isn’t that complicated. I come away with the feeling that this is only the most superficial of a look inside of Spector’s mind.
