The Informant! (2009)

Director: Steven Soderbergh. Cast: Matt Damon, Melanie Lynskey, Scott Bakula. 108 min. Rated R. Comedy.

Another little project by Soderbergh. Great performance by Matt Damon, in the role of an absolute idiot playing the whistle-blower on corporate fraud for the FBI, making you wonder this is another "Commie flick" about how backstabbing the US government is against its own citizens. But then after an hour, the story gradually transforms - and saying anything beyond this would be spoiling the movie. But at the end you realize: So that's how people with psychiatric disorders pleasantly ascend to higher levels of the society - or even become presidents.

  1. According to it’s poster, I expected to watch a funny movie but it was not! due to Soderbergh ,whose works shouldn’t be missed ever ! I agree with you that it was a little project of him , and about very good performance by matt Damon and the final conclusion . Exactly , I got the point that movie says : at last the government encourages and giving prize to even strange people with bizarre and ambiguous behavior and even psychic like him , because their final deed helped the system to reach their aims .Amazing!

  2. It gives you a very good idea how psychos like Ahmadinejad rise to such high positions of power.
