This is a great movie. Could have been one of the best movies of the year... and it probably is. Michael Clayton is the title and the name of George Clooney's character. He's got a glass ceiling in his way of being a big shot corporate attorney because he's got a history of being the go-to guy for making things go away, so he's not quite squeaky clean.
Why am I hedging on stating this is definitely one of the best films? Smooth George. In the film he's under a HUGE amount of pressure, but he still looks like he's in GQ the whole time. I think it would have been a little better making him a little greasy and pasty... maybe even give him a giant, infected boil on that flawless, square chin or something like that. I mean, they picked Tilda Swinton as the chick he's battling with. Come on. She looks like an alien on a good day. She doesn't have a chance against the stud with the perfect stubble.
FilmBender is Funny Movie Reviews. Sydney Pollack is in there as well. And if you watched the trailer, that's Tom Wilkinson who's always great. But hey... although talented, those are also a couple of crusty lookin' peeps. Maybe that's George's trick -- be sure to get casted alongside a bunch who've been clunked with the fugly stick. Awesome movie helps... written and directed by the guy (Tony Gilroy) who penned all the Bourne movies and The Devil's Advocate among others. Check it out.
