Walking On, Walking On Broken Glass.
A young D.C. journalist (new “Star Wars” trilogy star Hayden Christensen) for The New Republic political magazine falsifies data and produces fraudulent stories. Slowly but surely his would-be meteoric rise turns into a dizzying downfall. “Boys Don’t Cry” alums Peter Saarsgard and Chloe Sevigny are out of this world as Christensen’s editor and supportive co-worker. Based on a true story, the picture has a tense documentary feel to it that makes it highly engrossing and fascinating early. The production does begin to tire late though as Christensen’s crazed personality starts to come shining through with dementedly over-the-top results. Still a well-paced and intelligent take on American journalism and the pressures associated with the field. Worth a legitimate chance. 4 stars out of 5.
A 24-year boy who writes for a fact-newspaper and has a bright future before him starts fabricating his articles
Stephen Glass, genially portrayed by Hayden Christensen, most known as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader in the two last Star Wars movies, is a 24-year old star journalist at The New Republic, and all his articles are entertaining its readers. He has a great life, he enjoys his job and he gets frustrated if he believes somebody is mad at him. But so far, he is happy. However, what nobody could ever imagine is that he has a secret. Chuck Lane, who is the editor, finds out the truth after the last article Steve wrote, Hack Heaven, lacks real sources and he starts to question him. It turns out that Stephen has fabricated more than half of his articles and it became the end of his journalist career.
It’s an incredible story, a story that you would never believe about a fact-checked magazine, but that you know would happen in all “the other” gossipy magazines. This is just a unbelievable story that is portrayed by unbelievably great actors. You will just end believe in everything that read on newspapers, magazines, everything. You will also start feel sorry for Steve, despite everything. Stephen Glass had a potential, all his stories had potential, but don’t believe in anything just because they are entertaining… they can be fictional.
What does not make sense is why Stephen Glass did not become an author instead of journalist for a popular magazine? Well, he wanted a little attention, he wanted fame, and he got it, but it also became the end of his career. The irony is that he has received his law degree and his first novel, that ironically is about a fictional story of a journalist who fabricated over half of his articles, has been published recently. The movie just made me think: What do you know about your friends, your parents, your siblings, your employees, your partners, your bosses? They can perhaps have any secret that you just couldn’t ever imagine… just because they are such great people, so clear in their minds. But what I can say is that you will never judge people by their looking, character and personality… never judge them by their lies, secrets and what they have done, too… don’t judge people at all. Just don’t believe everything they say or write.
