52 Movies in 52 Weeks: Week 19: State of Play
Briefly put, I didn’t know anyone who had seen this film so there was nobody’s recommendation to consider.
I believe it was one of the best performances I have ever seen from Russell Crowe. Ditto for Ben Affleck. And Rachel McAdams was pretty great too. Jason Bateman makes an appearance for a very small part. While a crucial character, I enjoyed his role.
The film was intense throughout, keeps you guessing a little bit. It kind of kept me on edge throughout. A few twists & turns. Good performances. Good casting, dialogue, cinematography.
My review: A-
