2004 * Jonathan Demme* Stars: Denzel Washington, Liev Schreiber, Meryl Streep, more. *
Roger Ebert reviews the Gulf War update of the 1962 original:
Schreiber, as Shaw, has the role played by Laurence Harvey in the original, and Washington follows Frank Sinatra. Meryl Streep has the assignment of playing the alarming and incestuous Mrs. Shaw, a role for which Angela Lansbury won an Oscar nomination, while essentially stealing the movie. Streep wisely goes for oblique humor rather than straight-ahead villainy, making the character different and yet just as loathsome. *

Big city newspaper reporter Cal McAffrey [Crowe] brings his own jigsaw puzzle with him wherever he goes. He's a mass of contradictions with the mental discipline to host two opposing paradigms with equal consideration. His lifestyle mirrors his consistent respect for any and every bit of background or scrap of information he can gather... as evidenced by the condition of his car, work area, and home apartment. His associates and colleagues give him "space" - they consider it a minor concession in exchange for front page headlines. The world of such self-determined people is often turned around when friends [Ben Affleck, Robin Wright Penn], rookies [Rachel McAdams], and even boss [Helen Mirren] come under fire from insiders, informants, and assassins, in a David and Goliath scenario.
State of Play is a link to Trump VIII, Trump IX guideline, and Trump X.
