Best Movies That Show the Dark Side of Hollywood

Hollywood is a glamour machine that spews out our greatest hopes, our highest ambitions, and our most personal dreams. More often than not, Hollywood films show us the world as we want it to be, ignoring the harsh realities that might leave us depressed or, even worse, leave producers with poor ticket sales to their latest release.
It's a place and a business where anyone can make something of themselves, and part of its ongoing success lies in making us all believe that stardom and fortune could happen to all of us, too…
The following films shed light on that fabrication, showing Hollywood for the brutal factory of crushed dreams it actually is. Whether they depict people struggling to make it in the industry, the sociopaths who actually run it, or everyone else who just exists in the background, the following films focus less on the celebration of Hollywood's artifice and more so on its deconstruction.
