I agree. Michael Clayton (2007) was really very good.
"Do I look like I'm negotiating?"
Michael Clayton: Cops like hit-and-runs. They work 'em hard, they clear 'em fast. Right now there's a BCI unit picking paint chips off a guard rail. Tomorrow they're gonna be looking for the owner of a custom painted, hand rubbed Jaguar XJ12. The guy you hit? If he got a look at the plates, it won't even take that long. There's no play here. There's no angle, there's no champagne room. I'm not a miracle worker, I'm a janitor. The math on this is simple; the smaller the mess, the easier it is for me to clean up.
Client: That's the police, isn't it?
Michael Clayton: No. They don't call.

And forgive me, I see you quoted my first draft, before my edit. I had meant to include Solaris from the beginning, but when I copy-pasted the name over, I found I had copied Syriana instead. Syriana was actually pretty good.
