State of Play Movie Review by Filmkiller (7/12/2010)

State of Play is a film to which I'd refer displaying the prejudices of the modern audience coupled with its attention span that sometimes seems akin to a fly, single-mindedly drawn to feces.

State of Play Movie Review by Jarrod (4/20/2009)

'State of Play' is a condensed version of a British TV series created by Paul Abbot; but a lot of has been crammed in here, one of the screenwriters is Tony Gilroy, who did Michael Clayton, and the recent Duplicity, with Julia Roberts and Clive Owen. Gilroy enjoys puzzling, labyrinthine narratives, and this film may have...
