Except for a superb movie such as "All the President's Men," we hardly ever witness how a reporter's story is written or the steps through which it must go in order to finally reach the printed page. "Shattered Glass" is an exception. It is a nearly flawless film about the self-destruction of the real-life, fast-rising media star, Stephen Glass, former reporter and associate editor for The New Republic magazine. Eager to make his mark as well as his fortune, Glass, portrayed very convincingly against type by Hayden Christiansen, cannot resist the temptation of substituting fiction for fact to make his contributions more attractive, not to mention publishable and famous. Not only do we see how Glass's imagination, purpoted to be the truth, appeals to his editors, but how easily his ingratiating personality seduces and manipulates the entire TNR staff. Indeed, he is be-friended, admired and envied by his co-workers who seek to emulate his approach and style. His skyrocketing trajectory, however, comes crashing down when a fact-checking writer for the online magazine Forbes Digital Tool begins to question more than a few of the items in one of his stories, "Hack Heaven," which appeared in a May 1998 issue of TNR. Alerted to some of the inconsistencies in Glass's story, unpopular new TNR editor Charles Lane, impressively portrayed by Peter Sarsgaard, begins to do some fact checking of his own, methodically unravelling the layers of deception and duplicity until he finally discovers that Glass is merely a pathetic charlatan. In what could have been a dry expose of the inner workings of a highly-regarded, current events and policy publication, Billy Ray, in his directorial debut, presents us with a version of the story as tense and intriguing as any mystery. Its ethical message is disturbing, but as drama, it is simply riveting. To emphasize the poignancy if not the significance of Glass's transgression, Ray also effectively employs the device of juxtaposing the scenes in which Glass is lecturing to a high school class on the fundamentals of reporting against those in which he is composing his stories, that is, fabricating events- which we first see as actually occurring. Anyone who has ever known or crossed paths with the people who exist in this world cannot help but be impressed with the authenticity we find here. A fine script, great performances and dedicted direction make this excellent entertainment while serving up a compelling statment.

This movie isn't a movie. It's a portrayal of an extremely troubled young Mr. Ripley, whose only wish is to be loved. But there's one small problem...he can't be. So he lies. He lies. He lies to be loved. He lies to be funny. He lies...because the truth hurts. Hayden Christensen gives an amazing performance as the dark Stephen Glass, and you really feel the pain and anguish he goes through for doing something so horrible. He is an incredible actor, and I haven't been dissapointed with anything he's done yet. For a first movie, Billy Ray has shown what true office life is like, while at the same time, dug the audience into the mind of a pathological fraud. This movie makes you wonder what your own life would be if for one moment during your told a few white lies. That's all folks.
