Shattered Glass (5/1/2009)

We watched this rather good little movie last night. It’s based on the true story of a journalist who worked for the New Republic and who, for whatever reasons, fabricated his stories rather than based them on carefully researched fact. The journalist is played by Darth Vader Hayden Christensen. It’s a pretty good performance and leaves you guessing for a lot of the movie as to what’s going on inside his head. The problem is, don’t know whether the cold, calculating decietful person I thought I was glimpsiong from time to time was really supposed to be there, or whether that was just a part of my brain screaming ‘Don’t trust him – he’s turning to the dark side!’ and actually the story is about someone rather sad who was simply floundering way out of his depth.

Sad sad sad.

On the plus side, Peter Sarsgaard is excellent as his editor.
