Your Internet Celebrity Movie Review — The Informant! (2009)
While gathering evidence against his institutional employer to help the FBI build a price-fixing conspiracy case, affable agribusiness executive Mark Whitacre (Matt Damon) begins to piece together a fantasy world of his own. Scott Bakula, Joel McHale and Melanie Lynskey co-star in Steven Soderbergh’s dark comedy, which is based on Kurt Eichenwald’s acclaimed nonfiction book about the true-life Corporate America whistle-blower.
This movie is based on a true story. The events were so bizarre it is treated as a dark comedy. There were times it felt like a public service message about bipolar disorder. Some moments were so absurd I could not help myself from laughing. I think most people would not like this movie but I am giving this one 3 stars. Matt Damon did an impressive job.
