Tony Gilroy's engrossing, intelligent, Oscar-nominated conspiracy thriller stars George Clooney as a fixer for a megabucks Manhattan law firm. He's the "janitor" who cleans up all of its clients' most incriminating messes, so when the firm's top litigator, Tom Wilkinson, strips off his clothes in a deposition room and announces that he's the "god of death", it's up to Clooney to reel him in before he compromises the shady class-action suit he's been working on. But Clooney suspects that Wilkinson might be the one who's sane, while his mercenary colleagues are the real gods of death.
