Michael Clayton

It's a mystery.

This incomprehensible piece of slush was nominated for 7 Oscars, including Best Picture.

Perhaps someone who has managed to sit through it, even liked it, could take a moment and explain to us what it is about.

We have no idea.

We stopped watching it after about an hour.

I tried to finish watching it the next night. I managed about 20 minutes.

And George Clooney as Best Actor?

Is this someone's idea of a mass prank?

How about George Clooney as the Most Attractive Hat Rack in History?

Handsome, yes. Charming, yes. Actor - has the full range from A to A minus.

The movie is slick. It is beautifully filmed. It has many written words of dialogue.

But we don't even know the story, let alone the whole point. So Hollywood, such unrealistic characters living in a world inhabited only by script writers.

By the way, in case you're not getting the full thrust here... we really didn't like this movie.
