Format: DVD
It might be a sweeping generalisation, but films are evolving to the point where careful study is necessary to soak up every last detail. Michael Clayton, the 2007 film starring George Clooney, is no exception. From the opening moments of the film, the audience is thrust into a world that doesn't quite make sense: a voice-over by one of the principal characters seems absolutely insane, yet compelling enough to get you to stick around for what comes next. And indeed, what comes next is a taut, psychological thriller that involves litigation, a lawsuit by plaintiffs suffering at the hands of a nameless corporation, and a lone underdog willing to fight the system to right these wrongs. You've heard it all before, right?

Wrong.

Michael Clayton, the titular character, is a "fixer," working for a large law firm to handle the small but significant problems that arise. From being called in to assist with a hit-and-run by a prestigious client, to playing babysitter to a senior partner suffering from acute bipolar syndrome, Clayton can do it all. The problem is that he's been doing it all for the past thirteen years and would rather be in the courtroom than out of it.

So when a problem arises with a huge case involving 500 plaintiffs that's about to come off the rails, Clayton is called in to fix it. The problem is that one of the other characters involved in the case will do anything -- anything -- to ensure that the case reaches a successful conclusion.

The characterisation in the film is powerful, wringing wrenching and thought-provoking performances from Tom Wilkinson, Sydney Pollack, and Tilda Swinton in particular. The plot never lets up either, with surprises waiting behind each bend of Tony Gilroy's outstanding story.

Among Clooney's better films, Michael Clayton touches briefly on the reality of corporate politics, and the dire consequences for those who swim against the corporate stream. Initially a strong plot, but with a weak, "cop-out" ending, something Clooney has done in many otherwise good films ( perhaps at the behest of his corporate sponsors ).

What more can I say. I loved this movie. I purchased it for a workshop where I needed a clip about conflict. I do recommend this movie, and of course, lots of people would buy this movie just for George Cluny.

Format: DVD
Here we have a film which goes over ground we see on tv all too much as we are saturated with all these
police shows and lawyer shows from all kinds of angles and degrees and there ok but we just wonder why all
these shows dealing with legalese? The legal system is so much part of our life its like the life we have before us disturbs us in some way, and this glut of tv shows and what their about will certainly disturb, and not only about the legal system..and here we have George Clooney and as the commentators state a very good looking actor like robert redford cary grant..but how good as actors are they? In this film he is very good and approaches the part in a way which takes the sex out of his character as one reviewer states he understates his role, and the females overstate theirs almost to a vociferous pitch..they are all too demonic and overthe top he is a good commentator and director and perhaps this is the one weakness in the film. They are intelligent, resourceful, sophisticated and appealing and yet a pronounced bellicosity breaks through in the end? But as he states he wants to tell a story about ahero, George Clooney their we are...he writes him up very good..who is very familiar to me I know him and all about him more than any other american..and he actually plays this part almost perfect it is a very good piece of acting. Which is why the film proceeds in all ways, the dialogue he says the pacing and everything adds to the flavour of the film as he plays the character against type..and against all fashions where an actor actsa part in tune with his media image..rather than focusing on the role..the film about an investigation, murder, child parent relation, a patient being forced to take a drug by the legal system, and at the end the "trying to kill" over and over..
