Four stars (R)
George Clooney, Tom Wilkinson
Big, somber ‘70s-style thriller about corruption and redemption, expertly assembled and artfully presented, with a powerhouse cast led by a full-fledged movie star (Clooney) at his best, with a great supporting turn by Wilkinson. 119 minutes. DVD INFO: Two separately packaged DVDs are available. One preserves the film in the anamorphic widescreen format, while the other hacks off nearly a third of the feature for the fullscreen (aka pan & scan) version. Shop carefully. Both versions include a commentary track by writer/director Tony Gilroy and brother, film editor John Gilroy, plus three additional scenes.
