Michael Clayton

Michael Clayton ★★★★

what i wouldn’t give to have been the credited “poker consultant” for this movie, which contains maybe 15 seconds of out-of-focus background poker playing. love that tony gilroy doesn’t need any legal experts to help key him in to how billion dollar class action suits are handled, agrochemical whizzes to hypothesize a fake carcinogenic pesticide for him, or even a restauranteur to walk him through the process of folding over a failed bar venture, but he evidently does need a sunglasses friend to help him write three lines where guys say “I fold” at a blackjack table before Michael Clayton needs to take a phone call.

Tony: if you need any advice at all about normal guy shit for your next feature, hit me up. i can probably explain for cheap $$
