Clever low budget film with great casting,
This review is from: Shattered Glass [DVD] (DVD)
The scriptwriter draws you into the world of Glass's deceit in quite an unexpected way that makes you on the receiving end of one of Glass's pranks as much as his NR editors and colleague writers, which I won't divulge in detail in case I spoil it for you. The best part about this film is how you start off feeling sorry for Glass, who seems to crave popularity and attention with colleagues, and you end up despising him for what he does to compromise the NR's reputation, whilst the opposite happens with his rival editor and eventual new boss Chuck Lane who is smarmy and cliquey with the Publisher but ends up being respected for sorting out the mess in the face of a tide of disbelief and opposition to his decision to suspend and then fire Glass. This is a brilliantly cast film and all the actors do this film justice.
You won't be disappointed. It's one of my favourite films and I love the quirkiness of it and the theme tune.
