I was driving around yesterday, in traffic, and thought of this scene. I remember someone asking Tony Gilroy — what was Clooney thinking of in the back of this cab, no audio — just camera, for two long minutes? He said Clooney told him he was replaying the entire film in his head… Tony Gilroy might have photographed the scene — can’t remember.
It took Tony Gilroy six years to make Michael Clayton.
