Michael Clayton

Anyone see this yet? Wide release starts on 10/12 I believe. Looks good

Oh, and George Clooney will be on David Letterman this evening

It got RAVE reviews, one critic said it is the picture to see this year and Clooney's performance is exceptional. (and may I add that Mr Clooney looks wonderful.) I'd like very much to see it.

Hmm. I definitely didn't predict this one being a winner, but the reviews really are great.

Might check it out after all.

Copy and pasted from other thread:

George Clooney delivers in this slow burning but rewarding semi-legal drama. He is far and away the best thing in this, but that's not to say it's a bad film. It's great to see him continue to do projects like this (whether as an actor, director and producer) in between the commercial fare like the Ocean's franchise. He's definitely my favourite working actor.

I have a feeling it's one of those films that shouldn't be seen with high expectations. It's best to view it with an open mind and as little prior knowledge of the plot beforehand.

The writer/director is the guy who adapted all the Bourne films.

Also, he had Sydney Pollack, Steven Soderbergh and Anthony Minghella as exec producers.

Won't be surprised if it's a winner.

Uh, no

I can't wait to see it, every review I have read raves about it. Hopefully it will be out wide this Friday.

I will have to tape Letterman, that is one hot combo

He was in Boston a few weeks ago to give an award to Jerry Weintraub but the tickets cost hundreds of dollars The hotel was far too out of the way to go there to try to even get a glimpse and be shot down and disappointed.

Too late! All the high praise has gotten me interested in it, whereas before I figured it'd be worth a rental when it came out on DVD.

I have barely any knowledge of the plot, though.

Been looking forward to this one for a long time, and it doesn't disappoint. Not a stunning directorial debut from Gilroy (not to say that aspect is weak) but the editing/pacing keeps up with the top-notch screenplay, and of course this is an acting showcase, Clooney hasn't failed to impress me in a long time, Sydney Pollack is decent (better director than he is acting) Tilda Swinton as always is great to watch, especially versus Clooney. Wilkinson who is normally excellent was a bit out there at times but serviceable. I don't expect it to sweep any awards, but that means absolutely nothing to me anyway.

Now it's just too bad to read today that Clooney's next film Leatherheads has been pushed to next year. Although he's also reteaming with Swinton, Brad Pitt and the Coen Brothers for Burn After Reading, should be a good Clooney year.

No, I never watched it. I think I have lost interest in U2 lately to be honest and I just can't keep up with Bono and all of his activities, it's just overwhelming at times

I really enjoyed it. powerhour24, I have to disagree: I thought Wilkinson was very good. Everyone was very good.
