MISERY
April 23, 2015  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

Sundance, 7:45 p.m. ET

 

This 1990 movie, based on a Stephen King story and directed by Rob Reiner, gave King another mainstream movie hit – and made a star of Kathy Bates, as the fan of a novelist (James Caan)  who ends up holding him captive after finding him in a car accident. One scene in this movie version became iconic, but I don’t intend to hammer home the point.

Kathy Bates re-created that scene a few years ago, in a funny and clever commercial for DirecTV. A bedridden James Caan also appeared; I'm sure his footage was taken from the movie.
