While Sean Penn grabs the headlines for his emotive bluster in Mystic River,Peter Sarsgaard gives a brilliantly measured performance as editor Chuck Lane.

Even though the story of Glass' downfall has been in the public domain for years now, Ray's makes it seem like a breaking story.

"Shattered Glass" is sharp filmmaking; one of the better independent offerings for 2003.

Representa uma importante lição de ética para os profissionais de Comunicação e deveria ser exibido em todos os cursos de Jornalismo.

Long Island Press

Easily one of the most original and shrewdly crafted movies this year, amidst a glut of hollow, show-off cinematic pageantry.

Where's the payoff, a new generation might rightly ask, in ethics?

We don't find out why Glass did what he did, but ... maybe the why isn't as important as the how. Shattered Glass is asking us to stay on our toes.

...not a very theatrical film, but still concise and taut without being skimpy on necessary traits.

a scintillating morality play about the lengths to which some people will go in order to be accepted

Insanely undercuts exactly the characters we're most curious about, [and] scrupulously avoids the questions that are most pressing within the material.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

At one point, the Glass character defines journalism as 'the art of capturing behavior,' and that's also where this movie excels...

Not since All the Presidents Men has journalistic integrity been so entertainingly scrutinized.

A next-century All the President's Men, in which the values of enterprise reporters who took inspiration from Woodward and Bernstein are subject to corruption.

Top Critic IconTop Critic

Does a superb job in presenting four of the five journalistic 'Ws' of its story: the who, what, where and when. It fails, however, on the essential 'why' of the tale.

Shattered Glass isn't the final word on the decay of journalistic ethics ... but it's a solid office movie that hints at a different set of problems currently eating away at the profession.

An actor's film free of gimmicks, and a small filmic gem.
