State of Play stars Russell Crowe and that really Hot girl from all those movies she’s in but can’t remember what movies she’s in. What is it about? Eh. Part of it is about Politics and the issues that politicians have with keeping their pants on. Part of it is about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the out-sourcing of security to dudes like Blackwater. And part of it is about the downfall of newspapers. But none of these are really committed to each other, and the movie suffers from a complete lack of caring by the actors, the director and the audience. But, I mean, you do get to see a ton of local DC flare. And the result is that you are not missing much if you don’t get to see a ton of DC flare.
