Michael Clayton

A Movie ReelMichael Clayton: 8 out of 10.

This is a smart, well acted film that I thoroughly enjoyed. At first I thought George Clooney's Michael Clayton was sort of like Mr. Wolf in Pulp Fiction. He's a janitor of sorts who gets called in when the shit hits the fan. Where Mr. Wolf could make the problem go away, Clayton is more of a realist. He's not a miracle worker, he's a janitor.

Tilda Swinton won an Oscar for her supporting role in this film and both George Clooney and Tom Wilkinson were nominated. It's the only movie last year to get that many acting noms.

Sadly, both the producer and one of the executive producers have passed on since this movie's release. Sydney Pollack, who also has a juicy role in the film, and Anthony Minghella are no longer with us.
