Michael Clayton

Michael Clayton ★★★½

Even as a lawyer, I don't think there are very many movies about lawyers that I enjoy all that much. It's not much of a "they're not doing it right" situation rather than the fact that there have been so many courtroom scenes in TV and movies that they're hard to be very interesting any more. My favorite legal movies deal more with hearings, depositions or alternative problem solving. In law school I mentioned Michael Clayton as my favorite lawyer from a movie for the way he handles things out of court, but two other favorite legal movies are Social Network and Paths of Glory.
