Michael Clayton

From the writer, or should I say recycler, of the Bourne trilogy comes this solid thriller, as law firm super-fixit man Clayton (Mr. G. Clooney) finds himself in hot water over his colleague’s shonky dealings in a squillion dollar corporate lawsuit. Nothing here that you haven’t seen in any number of John Grisham outings, difference here being moody direction by Gilroy and a superb cast totally in command of proceedings. Very low key, but nonetheless enjoyable with a few nice twists and turns.
