This film is a bit of a challenge to watch. There are a lot of characters, a lot of plot twists, and some pretty long side trips (tangents).
Russell Crowe plays Cal, a newspaper reporter who has pretty much seen it all and done it all (aside from working out or cutting his hair). A young woman dies at a subway station, but all is not what it seems. Turns out the woman worked for Cal's old room mate at college (played by Ben Affleck). The room mate is having marital problems, but not because of the current affair. Newbie reporter Della (Rachel McAdams) wants to be a "real" reporter instead of just writing blogs, and the story is in part told from her point of view. Like us, she doesn't always understand the ins and outs, the who-has-shared-whose-bed, corporate cover-ups, or why the world works the way it does in Washington, DC, and when things are explained to her, we too finally understand. There are double crosses, triple-crosses, backstabbing, word plays, behind-the-scenes skullduggery, and plot twists that will keep you guessing right till the end of this film, which in some ways reminds me of oldies such as "All the President's Men".
Russell Crowe once again made himself into the character, which, unforunately, meant gaining enough weight to make him look like constipated hippo when he runs, and his hair is often a character unto itself as it flies across his face. He looks the part of a "Too old and tired to care" reporter who is one mistake away from being unemployed, and the other characters are believable too, including Helen Mirren, who plays Cal's snippy and sarcastic boss.

A very fine " who? what? when?"
Everyone is deceiving everyone else while calling for "trust".
Whow! Could be politics!

I am a fan of Russel Crow and like most of his movies, and this one is included. He makes most of his movies believable and State Of Play ranks at a 3.5 Star rating for this reason alone. A lot of movies in this genre can seem over stated or has poor acting and cinematography. State Of Play is not one of those and can be added to your collection at least. The Blue Ray just gives a good movie more realism. Of course the price makes it worth your consideration.

I love this movie and have watched it several times. I think it shows Russell Crowe at his best as far as his acting skills go. Down to earth, regular guy doing his job. Critics may not agree with me but I rarely agree with them either and never use their critiques to decide if I want to see a movie. I know what I like and I like this movie very much!!
