Price Fixing...and other stuffReviewed bytiabuena-742-259649Vote: 8/10

This will be short. I read the book when it first came out in 2000, and recently watched the film, and now am rereading the book. The book is dry and difficult, with three and half pages of involved people listed at the very beginning. Who can keep track of all this? It is replete with the taped conversations of the involved, all of the everything that went on. And, it is tedious, if correct, in the extreme. Well, what the film did, and bless it, was to simplify all of this stuff and make it intelligible to us ordinary folks. And, it made a really nasty story somewhat funny, because we know within the first half hour or so that there is something hinky about this Whitacre character. Oh boy, is there, but I won't write a spoiler here. There's no reason to. Even in the book, the FBI guys were wondering about Whitacre. Why did he turn traitor to his own company? What did he have to gain? The film is extremely well done, an amazingly good adaptation of a book which would probably have you snoozing after fifteen minutes. Matt Damon really shows his stuff in this one, even developing a modest middle age belly to complete the image of the nerdy scientist.

Watch it, laugh at it, and remember: this is a true story about why most of the people in America are poor and how their losses are paying for the riches of companies which have decided that "the customer is the enemy".

Corruption in the cornReviewed bymoviemanMAVote: 10/10

The Informant! (the exclamation point is part of the title, even though I am very excited about it). A film based on true events. It stars Matt Damon as Mark Whitacre, an executive at ADM, one of the world's largest agricultural conglomerates, and in regards of the film, one of the front runners in corn processing technologies. Whitacre lives a good life with his family in Illinois. We being when trouble starts at the plant and an employee is suspected of trading secrets and sabotage. The FBI is brought in to investigate with the help of Whitacre, who is being treated like the company guinea pig. When he and his wife can't stand it, he confesses. The real damage that is going on with the company is with price fixing.

Whitacre agrees to assist the FBI after seeing no other way out of it. He becomes an informer. After being somewhat reluctant to proceed, Whitacre goes all out with his new fixation. He records conversations, stages meetings, and collects evidence to build a case with the bureau on ADM.

Damon holds nothing back for this role. Aside from the physical changes Damon went through, you can tell just by the simple lines of dialogue that every word is important and that he is trying to speak through the character and not as an actor.

His supporting cast does a fantastic job, especially FBI agents Shepard and Herndon played by Scott Bakula and Joel McHale. Damon is surrounded by several faces from comedy from both this era and previous institutions of comedy. Comedians like Tom Papa, Patton Oswalt, Tom and Dick Smothers, and Paul F. Tompkins. Knowing that these people were comedians playing fairly dramatic roles took some of the drama out and made it a little funnier. Papa did an excellent job as one of ADM executives.

Where the film really takes off is off screen. The voice overs by Damon's character add so much humor and levity to the story. In between scenes where Whitacre is walking, driving, or any time there is little action to take notice of, we here Whitacre giving some speech about something almost completely irrelevant, but still timely and very amusing. There is truly never a dull moment.

Soderbergh does a fantastic job filming here. He uses a great mixture of colors and tones that reek of the 90s, especially in the office buildings and hotels. He captures the right feeling for each scene. As we see that Whitacre is slowly being consumed by the case, we can tell without even being told. Soderbergh is very good at presenting the right mood for a film.

It doesn't hurt to have an amazing soundtrack by Marvin Hamlisch, who has done scores for all different types of films like The Sting, Bananas, Ordinary People, and The Spy Who Loved Me. The score is over the top, but so is the story. It fits perfectly with what is going on in the movie. I especially enjoy the scenes of Damon walking through the ADM office. The music is like a combination of a jazz club, game show, and an elevator.

I know it's early, but I have high hopes that this one will get recognized by the academy. There isn't anything of major concern that is wrong with the film. Damon for sure should get recognized here. He never gets a ton of praise for his acting, although he is very popular and successful. Here is a breakthrough performance for someone who has already broken through. For Soderbergh, it's just another victory for this incredible filmmaker.

The Ugly AmericanReviewed byalainbenoixVote: 4/10

I think, but I'm not sure, this was meant to be a sort of comedy, a satirical social commentary. Marvin Hamlisch's music score seems to be underlying that. Well, sorry, didn't work for me. Mostly because Matt Damon goes through it winking at the audience. I couldn't believe in that character at all, not for a minute. On the positive side, Steven Soderbergh and "his cinematographer" understand the ugliness of the story, uglier that funny that's for sure and never betrays that idea. It looks as if shot on video and that helps very much the urge to stay away from this character and his world. Who was Matt Damon's character, really? Frankly my dear I don't give a damn.
