Michael Clayton: **** Very good
Michael Clayton (George Clooney) is an experienced lawyer with a big firm in New York. Instead of litigating, he fixes messes for his clients and he's good at it. He calls himself a janitor. His life is full of personal problems and he is unraveling, and there doesn't appear to be much he can do about it.
There's a big class action law suite. There is skullduggery. There are hypocrites, crazy lawyers, rich people, not rich people, people with addictions, killers, and heroes.
It's a great story, well told. I recommend it on the big screen. Clooney is wonderful; Tilda Swinton, Tom Wilkinson, Sydney Pollack - all great.
It's rated R for language and some sexual dialogue, but I sure didn't notice it. I don't think it should have been rated R.
