Clive Owen - 'nuff said
23 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Like Harrison Ford, don't we love to watch him win, and don't we love to watch him suffer.

We quite like watching him have a nap, wash a car, or have his lip bitten by prettier girls than us...

As if we weren't being spoiled enough already, there's an ensemble cast that makes you go 'wow, he/she was in this?' about every five minutes before you finally settle down to enjoy it.

There's social commentary to die for - I've yet to see a more succinct analysis of the (tawdry) joys of asset-stripping, or the heady (and extremely dangerous) thrills of teeming and lading.

Now admit it, all my accountant friends out there - you've never seen teeming and lading outside of a textbook or a bad client's ledger books, have you? A series brave enough to educate its audience, and gorgeous enough to keep its audience after admitting it was gonna be educational...
