On "State of Play"
From The Dispatch:
There may be a few plot holes here and there, but on the whole this is top-notch mainstream filmmaking. Macdonald wastes nothing, and "State of Play" moves along at a thrilling clip. It has a constantly compelling energy that recalls the great newspaper dramas of the past like "All the President's Men." He creates maximum suspense with minimal action, keeping the viewer guessing with unforeseen twists and turns that constantly turn the story on its head. It is a world where morality takes a back seat in pursuit of the perfect story, and things don't turn out in their most ideal conclusions.Click here to read my full review.
