I had friends tell me that this was a “horrible” movie. I’m not sure what was “horrible” about it considering that it is an interesting “true story”. With flair, Steve Soderbergh squeezes every ounce of irony, humour and pathos to a story that could have been made with a melancholy vibe under a different director. Think “The Insider”. Instead, he turns the almost always “fit and fierce” Matt Damon into a pudgy self-deluded whistleblower. This, along with the hilarious inner dialogue of Whitacre makes this movie worth watching.
