Never quite catches fire...

4 years, 6 months ago at Feb 26 11:20
"Well, there you have it, from Mark Whitacre, Ph.D. You know what the Ph.D. stands for, don't you? Piled higher and deeper."

While the marketing squad at Warner Brothers promoted The Informant! as a loony comedy set within the corporate environment, the trailers are in fact quite misleading. Rather than playing the material as a straightforward mainstream comedy, director Steven Sod... read more

A bizarre movie

3 years, 9 months ago at Dec 21 10:46
I liked this movie but it is definitely not for everyone (my wife fell asleep for example...). There is a weird combination of styles which I found really intriguing and Matt Damon was just amazing. If you like weird movies, maybe this is for you... Anyway, I think it is definitely worth a look, if only for Matt Damon's impressive perfomance.

Why Do You Keep Lying?

*VERY LONG/SPOLIERS*

"It's very difficult to tell when Mr. Whitacre is telling the truth."

Watching Mark spin his webs is a lot like watching a little kid playing mind games with his parents. He's really a master of word-games, a real lord of lying, and he really has made lying his art-form, not unlike Holden Caulfield, actually. And that's why this movie is so funny... read more

Description: What was Mark Whitacre thinking? A rising star at agri-industry giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM), Whitacre suddenly turns whistleblower. Even as he exposes his company’s multi-national price-fixing conspiracy to the FBI, Whitacre envisions himself being hailed as a hero of the common man and handed a promotion. But before all that ...

Not interesting.

“This movie starts with a disclaimer "Although the movie is based on true events but some of them are dramatized".

And i was thinking, this is the worst way to start a movie, i mean we all know that the default status of movies based on true events are dramatized, so you don't have to reminds us of that, it's like saying, "hey, you know what, not all of the events in this movie are real", i'm like "what the fuck i'm watching it for?".

Anyway let's just ignore this, i'm coming back to it later.

This movie is based on a book, and it's a reminder also that not all books should be adapted into a motion picture, reason being is that this movie isn't interesting in the slightest, the story is so boring and the characters are so dull, and there's also a confusing narr” read more

"29.6. Laugh-out-loud funny story of a man (Matt Damon) trying to be a hero and expose an price-cartel that his company is running. Too bad that the Damon charachter is an complete idiot. Best use for voice over for a long time. "
