“Michael Clayton” (2007) is another morally ambiguous George Clooney vehicle. It’s also a pretty darn good corporate espionage movie. The characters are complex and interesting. The plot has stimulating twists and turns without being indecipherable. It also uses the plot device where you see a pivotal moment in the film and then go back in time to see the various events leading up to that moment. I enjoy that every once in a while. But most importantly, Danny Noonan from “Caddyshack” plays an a-hole lawyer. Who’da thunk it? I though he disappeared after “The Slugger’s Wife.” It’s a Cinderella story.
