The Informant!

Based on a tattle-tale


The Informant!
Soderbergh decides to take on David Mamet in the ''who's fooling who?'' game in this look at corporate dirty dealing. Although it bears a superficial resemblance to the Michael Mann/Russell Crowe ''The Insider'', the man spilling the beans is a very different type of person. After agreeing to help the FBI expose corporate wrongdoing at a major multinational, the cops become worried when they start to realise that their inside man is running a game of his own... but they can't figure out his game plan.

108 minutes.

What the Critics say

Cape Argus / The Star
Teresa Smith quote iconSome thrills and spills and lots of suspension of believe required.
10
Die Burger
François Bloemhof quote iconHierdie fliek loop gevaar om krimineel vervelig te wees.
5
Chicago Sunday Times
Roger Ebert quote iconThe Informant! is fascinating in the way it reveals two levels of events, not always visible to each other or to the audience. A second viewing would be rewarding, knowing what we find out.

Rolling Stone
Peter Travers quote iconLaugh you will at The Informant!, but it's way too real to laugh off.
