Journalistic scandal story best for older teens.

Using unexpectedly suspenseful character drama, "Shattered Glass" elevates itself to the upper echelon of journalism films. Unless there's ever a 24 famous enough to warrant biopic treatment, this will likely be Christensen's only great performance.

Lessons of Darkness

Ray stages the film not as a mystery but as a case study in all-consuming denial and professional and psychological self-destruction.

Shattered Glass is engrossing drama, every bit as entertaining as the story on which it's based.

Lacks the journalistic killer instinct that could have elevated it above the well-executed but slightly sanctimonious, made-for-TV feel

Decent Films Guide

Glass's pattern of deceit is queasily persuasive; adding Catch Me If You Can psychologizing would only diminish the film's truthfulness, not enhance it.

Jack Safer wrote, after Glass was busted in '98, "If there's any moral to be taken from this story, it should be 'No more excuses.'" After seeing 1700 of them here, I agree.
