Critic Reviews of "The Informant!"Film.comMay 06, 2011
In the end, it seems as though it's better to aim for searing moments and whiff on greatness than to shoot for the middle and hit it.Time OutNovember 20, 2009
It may come across like a self-satisfied madcap bauble, but that titular exclamation mark is the key that unlocks the myriad subtextual delights of Soderbergh's timely latest.Christian Science MonitorOctober 02, 2009
Damon is an agile comic performer, and Soderbergh knows how to serve him up without losing sight of the ultimate seriousness behind it all.Washington PostSeptember 19, 2009
Soderbergh is a good listener, too, always alert to the myriad ways his characters reveal, conceal and finally betray themselves in thought, word and deed.SlateSeptember 19, 2009
Mark's collection of bizarre behaviors doesn't add up to a character.ReelViewsSeptember 19, 2009
Soderbergh has transformed this into a treatise on the incompetence of everyone involved: the informant, the corporation upon which he informs, the lawyers, and the FBI. Strangely enough, it's completely believable.ArtforumJune 01, 2015
The Informant! is an inspired social satire, a near-perfect single-carat diamond in an age of mindless movie bling. It's a small movie, but not in any sense minor.Stop SmilingJune 01, 2015
As the story becomes more about the various undercover ops and the contradictory workings of Whitacre's hateful-lovable mind, The Informant! has an undeniable crackle.Film Comment MagazineSeptember 24, 2014
After a parodic run-up, the film betrays a certain respect for this odd little creation.American ProfileSeptember 29, 2011
Drills away into the dark humor of a white-collar tattletale, his ever-widening web of deceit and a scrambled criminal mind with a couple of screws loose.Movies.comApril 04, 2011
More funny-weird than funny-ha-ha. But still funny.
