Shattered Glass C or D?

I gotta be honest, I really enjoyed it - and on the DVD was a fantastic Mike Wallace interview with Stephen Glass that demonstrated to me the (unexpected) brilliance of Hayden Christensensensensen's performance. Ehh?

I would've liked to have seen more of the fallout after Glass was discovered, it seemed to end quite abruptly.

It also didn't really build up to a climax quite as well as it should've either, the late-night scene with Glass and the editor in the office seemed to drag along for ages.

That said, it was still enjoyable, so classic.

Dud. Victimless crime=lack of drama/suspense. It would have been far more compelling strictly as Peter Skarsgaard's story.

this was already one of my very favorite comfort movies before I figured out that the head of the mag is played by the great journeyman director Ted Kotcheff

the commentary track with writer/director Billy Ray and the real Chuck Lane is full of neat details as well

I wish "hero editors" were a little more common
