Michael Clayton

Here’s my review:

Michael Clayton

Boom. Just. Like. That. Boom. That’s how you do it. Everything. Story, characters, visual storytelling, music, acting. Take notes, kids.

The title works with this movie… because they made the movie about Michael Clayton, regardless of what the other characters were doing. Naming a movie after the lead character is tricky. It worked for Forrest Gump and… um… Juno. But it rarely works for blockbusters. Which is fine for this movie; it is not a blockbuster; the structure of the storytelling is too confusing for a blockbuster.
