TO THE WORLD~

STATE OF PLAY (2009)
– 3 and a half out of 5 stars

It’s actually a pretty complicated story, about how the apparent suicide or murder of a congressman’s lead researcher/mistress leads to the unravelling of a corporate conspiracy. The lead reporter in the story happens to have had a turbulent relationship with the congressman in the past and as he tries to get behind the truth, their lives are all at risk.

Personally, I wanted to watch this movie because of Rachel McAdams! It’s been so long since I saw her onscreen and Singapore didn’t air both her movies produced last year, so this is the first one since Red Eye. But the story was intriguing and just when you thought everything was solved, another loophole appears and there you have it – the actual perpetuator acting as the victim. Sometimes, the means used to get the means to the end won’t go according to plan. Sounds complicated, right? Well, you wouldn’t understand unless you saw the movie.
