I'm Shiva the God of Death!
A lawyer drama without a courtroom, about a "fixer" (George Clooney) who really needs to get out of a business that is gnawing at his soul. Others around him (like the superb characters played by Tom Wilkinson and Tilda Swinton) have already paid a high price. As much as the acting impressed me, I have to give props to the completely immersive script. It managed to make this world feel absolutely authentic, yet at the same time wasn't afraid to spin into ambiguous lyricism.
A fantastic thriller that for me was the best film of 2007. Clooney is working in top-gear here playing the title role as subdued and near-guttural. In fact, the whole cast shines. Not a weak link to be found.
