Michael Clayton

I saw Michael Clayton in NYC at a press screening in July. It was definitely the best film I saw over the summer. Tom Wilkinson will be getting best supporting actor for this film.. that's right, I'm predicting this now. Clooney is amazing as well. The film itself is a captivating story about people who work as "fixers" for huge law firms. In the film Tom Wilkinson's character loses his mind while working as council to a major agro-chemical company and his firm sends Clayton to remedy the problem. Clayton quickly realizes that the situation is much more complicated than that and it may get him killed. Michael Clayton is one of the smartest and intense films of the year.

Tony Gilroy (writer of the Bourne franchise) makes a strong directorial debut with this film letting us know that he will be a major player as a director. I will be the first in line for his next film.

This is the first film you should see before seeing anything else.
