Movie Review by Johnna
February 27th, 2008

A Winner in My Book

Favorite Movie Quote: ""He misspoke"; "Do I look like I am negotiating?""

Although Daniel Day Lewis can holler with gusto, I really believe George gave an Oscar-worthy performance of an almost resentful lawyer that happens to be fantastic at his job, being a "janitor". As you watch George, aka Michael Clayton, you watch the lack of patience for stupidity in his jaw, the longing for his son in his eyes, and the frustration with his situation brought upon him by his brother, in his stance.
This is a grown-up drama relying only on the quiet of the setting, the draw of the monologues, and the banter. Something my husband would never sit through for the lack of action and blood. This movie subtlety collects your interest until you cannot even pause it for a phone call...you must watch it till the very end. My only one question...Tilda? Really? Except for maybe the over drenched armpit, not at all my guess for an Academy Award.
