023: The Informant! (2009)

In his most rotund of rolls roles, Matt Damon plays diligent company exec-cum-governmental snitch Mark Whitacre. Dry as a bone humour and strong voiceover throughout, this Soderbergh picture is at best plainly enjoyable, but not much more than cine-pulp. It can be confusing keeping up with all the spin going back and forth, but then again, that’s what whistle blowing is all about.

THE GOOD: Matt Damon in an irregular offbeat role.

THE BAD: The overall payoff isn’t a payoff at all.

THE UGLY: Mid-nineties decor.

★★★☆☆☆

IMDb it.
