the informant (2009)
you see that up there? yeah, matt damon, 30 pounds heavier and sporting a stash. thats the exact face i had throughout the whole entire movie. "what the eff is goin on?" this offbeat and zany film about, wait let me have imdb do the talking.
imdb: The U.S. government decides to go after an agri-business giant with a price-fixing accusation, based on the evidence submitted by their star witness, vice president turned informant Mark Whitacre.
mark whitacre played by matt damon was superbly played and does it with such conviction that i almost believed it. his corky thoughts just dribble out of his chubby lips like a stand up comedian and guess what? theyre actually funny. i didnt know what to think going into the theaters knowing that i had not watched the trailer previously or anything. but to my non-existent expectations, all assumptions during the film were thrown out the roof. if you like surprises, you will enjoy this. theyre not like the sixth sense or seven kind of surprises, they are like small and little gifts of shock that just unravel one by one.
considering how the tagline is: based on a tattle-tale, he just reminds me of that one fat kid in elementary school who would spill the beans to the teacher by mumbling his confession while sucking on a chocolate fudge. (no?) hahha anywho, i give it a B.
