A crackling sizzling political thriller from Roman Polanski, this is the story of Ewan McGregor's Ghost Writer who's brought in to clean up former UK PM Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan)'s memoirs after the apparent suicide of the last writer.But as the Ghost starts work on them,Lang's facing a war crimes trial for flying terror suspects to the CIA.Soon the Ghost finds himself in the eye of the storm and in the mother of all paranoia.Great film from Polanski even if occasionally it does stretch credibility at times(the writer suddenly becomes cracking investigator)but this film veers towards smart rather than too cliched-there's some fun dialogue as McGregor's character rocks some amusing lines(All the words are there just in the wrong order he remarks about the book)Brosnan's suave as the PM who recalls Tony Blair and the parallels are frightening-it's a thriller which really keeps your attention for its 2 hours and proves Polanski still has it. Go see now.
