Michael Clayton (2007): Noir elements

Michael Clayton (2007)

“I’m a janitor.”

George Clooney plays Michael Clayton, a fixer for a big NY law firm’s well-heeled clients who get into trouble. When the firm’s top litigator Arthur (Tom Wilkinson) goes off the wall, Clayton’s called in to clean up. Any more and I risk spoilers.

My only comment: the wrong guy is given the film’s title, and that another protagonist risks more for higher purpose and deserves fuller exploration.

Don’t miss it.

  1. Hi! Tony,
    Here goes the film that I was in search of on Sam Juliano’s blog yesterday, but I think that your review of the 2007 film Micheal Clayton on
    Sam Juliano’s blog was a “bit” more indepth. Btw, a very interesting trailer or clip from the film.

    Thanks, For sharing!
    Deedee 🙂
