The Informant!

While watching The Informant!, I kept asking myself: is it the cars? is it the music? is it the ties? is it the acting? is it the cinematography? is it the structure? is it the directing? By the end of the film, I found the answers were: yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes and yes. Really enjoyed this film about corporate corruption, deceit and delusion. Well worth a look.

Going into The Informant!, I knew that it was very mismarketed as a hee-larious comedy. It's got laughs, but it's a little dark and entirely understated, which is all to the good.

Even though it was a bit slow in the beginning, I enjoyed it thoroughly when it began to pick up steam. It's a cool piece of work.

I liked this one too. Thought Damon really killed it and the score was good as well.

And that was a great list of movies that came out in 1980 as I didn't realize all those hit the same year.

Victor~The laughs here are dark and also at the absurdity of Mark's actions. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this film.

2D~The music set a great tone. I was surprised by that list from 1980 also. Kind of chuckle when I think of the dumpy old theaters we used to watch these in. I think we got a VCR that year for Christmas.
