Take a break from work: watch a trailer…
Steven Soderbergh has a new movie, and it’s a comedy — a dark comedy — about corporate crime. I’m not sure that we can call this “holding criminals accountable,” but at least someone is holding them up for ridicule. Which is a start, anyway.
And yet… if this is based on a true story, is it safe to assume that the whistleblower Matt Damon is portraying here really was as incompetent as this? Can we assume that the only way someone turns on their cabal of fellow felons is because they’re a little unstable, a little crazy?
If that’s true, we’re doomed.
Still: This is funny! I laughed! I can’t wait to see the movie! I’ll laugh some more! Ha ha, everything is fine!
The Informant! opens in the U.S. on September 18, and in the U.K. on November 20.
