While Steven Soderbergh’s latest looks great, features a decent George Clooney performance and has a terrific score, the overall tone of the film is that of boredom. Clooney plays a military journalist who finds himself investigating a murder that involves his emotionally erratic driver (Tobey Maguire, doing good playing bad) and his former lover (Cate Blanchett, uncharacteristically overacting in ingénue mode). The movie, shot in black and white, has its moments of interest, but it builds up to a big nothing with an ending that falls abruptly flat. It’s depressing, because Soderbergh and Clooney are going for something adventurous and different here, and their effort is admirable. But an admirable effort doesn’t always make for a good movie. Maguire steals the scenes that he is in.
