Review | The Informant!
OPENS: FRIDAY 9/18
Matt Damon scores hugely as a Midwestern biochemist who tells the FBI about his price-fixing corporation — and then slyly plays the feds and his employers against each other while embezzling millions! Jauntily directed by Steven Soderbergh (and based on a true story), the comedy sometimes
gets too hung up on details and exposition. But through it all, Damon ages convincingly — losing his hair
and boyish looks — as a brilliant, bipolar businessman who’s not as square as he appears.
