millimillenary’s review published on Letterboxd:
the reverse "go white boy go"
even with Robert Elswit's photography this didn't do much for me. not sure i liked most of what i saw save for a few scenes.
the ending didn't feel earned either, michael clayton is a guy that learns to be a good guy instead of a bad guy and this film is well made but where does that leave me? In a world where Michael Clayton's son doesn't exist and attorneys don't have sudden spiritual realizations that maybe they're the ones on the wrong side of humanity.
george clooney always plays a smug guy. whether he's the good guy, the bad guy, or batman. he talks to his co-stars like they're leagues beneath him. and he's got gray hair. i really just don't know about this guy. definitely not my kind of movie.
also what a terrible poster lmfao
