"State of Play" is a smart, ingenious thriller set in the halls of Congress and the city room of a newspaper not unlike The Washington Post. It's also a political movie, its villain a shadowy corporation that contracts with the government for security duties and mercenaries in Iraq. The name is PointCorp. Think Blackwater. If an outfit like that would kill for hire, the plot wonders, would it also kill to protect its profits?
Those same in-house stock analysts were irreplaceable, because they could get at the fraud right where they left it. An outsider could have ruined it, setting us temporarily free.
