Reviews - Michael Clayton
Reviewed By John Stakes
Perhaps I am biased - I used to be a lawyer ( not a corporate but a litigator nevertheless ) - but I've had to deal with the Tilda Swinton types over the years and their need to assert their ability and hard-won status at all costs was regularly evident - in short they were a pain in the neck and elsewhere. I did sympathise with her to the extent of forever having her client at her side hanging on her every word which is truly burdensome but her come-uppance was beautifully scripted and acted out. The acting throughout was uniformly high quality with Clooney applying an ensemble- inclusive approach and making no attempt to dominate the screen, so that all his lengthy time in front of the camera was spent in immersing himself in the lead role and the whiff of charisma never surfaced!
In short - great stuff.
