The Informant Opens Today
It always promises to be a good weekend when my favorite director has a movie opening. His latest promises to mix his trademark cinematic style with my new favorite subject matter of late - corporate criminals. The Informant tells the true story of Mark Whitacre, a top executive at the Archer Daniels Midland, who blows the whistle on his company's price-fixing only to turn around and committ some white collar crime himself. Hilarity ensued - at least in Steven Soderbergh's version, it does.
