The Informant

Viewed: 19 April 2010

The Informant seemed listless. The comedy never sharp enough, the music blunt, the plot never imbuing the importance of the story. I think the excellent This American Life episode about Mark Whitacre spoiled it for me. I wanted the film to be far better and more reaching. Also to make me laugh. It focuses solely on Mark Whitacre the pathological lying crazy person, to the detriment of the rest account. Sure Matt Damon looks funny, but it never really advances beyond that.
