The Laundromat

The Laundromat

How can you make a film of the exposé of the Panama Papers, the notorious cache of documents that laid bare how the ultra-rich and corrupt hide their ill-gotten wealth? You take a great collection of stars (Gary Oldman, Meryl Streep, Antonio Banderas), a superb script (by Side Effects writer Scott Z. Burns) and strap it all to Steven Soderbergh’s effervescent, kitchen sink directorial style.

Cutting through the shell corporations layers, Soderbergh’s brisk direction makes light work of the complexities, finding the murky human motivations behind it all. A witty, far-ranging take on modern money that never loses sight of the human cost of this manipulation.
