If you're lost, you're not alone. The evidence suggests Soderbergh and his screenwriter were, too.

It is a sign of my limited imagination, more than any evidence Steven Soderbergh has provided through his filmography, that when I first heard about The Laundromat, I visualised a thrilling exposé of the Panama Papers scandal.

Soderbergh's mature tax-avoidance tutorial is eye-opening.
October 18, 2019
Soderbergh keeps the heavy themes light and even playful, and Streep rides the film's sardonic wave in a double role that sees her donning a garish disguise as a Panamanian office worker.

More often than not, lesser Soderbergh is still worth watching. This is one of those times.
October 18, 2019
So little works here. The structure is muddled, the characters are bland, and the point being made is so thin, it doesn't warrant its own existence.
October 18, 2019
The Laundromat is unwieldy at times, and its final scene is truly befuddling. But it's worth watching not just for its bitterly entertaining explanation of a densely confusing matter but also the way it illustrates a larger problem.

A disappointment.

If you enjoy major stars talking at the screen, then a spin at this 'Laundromat' might float your boat. If not, it could prove infinitely more dull than droll.
October 17, 2019
While there are certainly elements here that disappoint, there's also a sense of Burns and Soderbergh applying themselves to a potentially impossible challenge.
October 15, 2019
The Laundromat has no idea what story it wants to tell, nor how sincerely it wants to tell it, and isn't half as much fun to watch as it clearly was to make.
October 12, 2019
Strangely undercooked and impersonal despite attempts to make clear how the rich and famous' shady dealings can affect the little guy.
October 11, 2019
The individual segments here are greater than the whole. Soderbergh gets especially preachy as the film lumbers to its climax, which includes a not entirely surprising twist and a big speech about the perils of greed that will likely fall on deaf ears.
October 11, 2019
Steven Soderbergh's latest is a disjointed misfire that still makes salient points and reveals some delicious surprises.
October 11, 2019
An often excessively irreverent endeavor...
October 11, 2019
Uses arch humor to get us angry when we hear about how the rich one percent are screwing us over.
October 11, 2019
Soderbergh knows how to entice us into paying attention, and entertain us until we are willing to think.
October 10, 2019
As you can imagine, this onslaught of fact, anecdote, and educated conjecture becomes rather unwieldy, even (or perhaps especially) when whittled down to a fast-moving 95 minutes.
October 10, 2019
It turns out to be quite a bit of fun being reminded of how bad things are by a crew as talented as Soderbergh and his estimable ensemble.
October 10, 2019
Weirdly half-baked and under-realized, the most slapdash of the director's efforts since his 2002 'Full Frontal.'
