The Informant! (2009)

Posted by Ştefan Alexandrescu on September 26, 2011

Steven Soderbergh, one of the best film directors in Hollywood is famous for the brilliant and extensive way he approaches tough subjects such as drug trafficking (Traffic, 2000, Oscar for best film director), sex (Sex, Lies and Videotape, Palme D’Or, Cannes, 1990), corporate trials (Erin Brockovich, 2000 – Julia Roberts’ Oscar for best actress), beaurocracy (Kafka, 1991) and rise of communism in Latin America (Che, part I & part II, 2008).

Based on the book of Kirk Eigenwald written after a real story, this is a corporate thriller masterfully plotted around Matt Damon’s character, who helps the FBI to bring down a company, but gets drawn and lost within his own lies. A unique informant, Mark Whitacre will leave you absolutely speechless. Seeing this movie you will understand how easy it is to steal millions of dollars and losing count of it by treating it like a misdemeanor.

My rating: 6 / 10 (good movie)
