''Hollywoodland'' was done with a relatively low budget and made a small profit in America, but it was well received by critics. The George Reeves part went to Creator/BenAffleck and critically it was perhaps the brightest spot in Affleck's career between ''Film/GoodWillHunting'' (1997) and ''Film/{{Argo}}'' (2012), as he got surprisingly good reviews for his portrayal. Also starring Diane Lane and Creator/BobHoskins.

* RealitySubtext: Affleck plays an actor who, like himself, endures a string of failures, struggles with alcoholism and bad relationships, and feels that he has become a laughing stock to the public. Of course Affleck's story has a much happier ending than Reeves' did.
