Matthew McConaughey should always play lawyers!!

I really enjoyed this movie. Fairly new director Brad Furman did a pretty good job of taking the screen writing of an outstanding book by Michael Connelly and making a very intense film. To make his job easier, he had an oustanding performance by Matthew McConaughey as the lead character. And in my opinion, it is his best work since A Time To Kill. I think Matthew ought to scrap all RomComs and concentrate on dramas like the 2 aforementioned films. This film starts out a little slow, but gains steam about a third of the way into the movie and ends with a "Bang". A fantastic supporting cast of William H Macy & Marisa Tomei (two of my favs), Ryan Phillippe, Josh Lucas, and Francis Fisher help make this a must see!! Also check out the cameo by Country Singer Trace Adkins...
