October 22, 2019
Steven Soderbergh's stylized, sardonic expose of financial corruption, preaching "The meek are screwed."
October 22, 2019
Soderbergh has done a brute and fanciful thing with... a political provocation not so much torn from the headlines of top-shelf newspapers but ripped from the pages of activist theater and in-your-face agit-prop.

Streep as Ellen is also wonderful, and only gets more fun to watch the closer her unassuming, middle-aged character gets to unraveling the machinations of the unfathomably rich.

A first class cast... in more or less episodic roles. [Full review in Spanish]

Put all this together and you have an airy concoction that amuses even if it doesn't pack the clout we might expect.
October 21, 2019
A disjointed but timely message movie, worth to watch on Netflix thanks to the caliber of its messengers. [Full review in Spanish]

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.

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.

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.

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.

[Gary] Oldman, who won an Oscar last year for playing Churchill, gets to take a German accent out for a spin. For the most, he handles the curves nicely, but in the pit he lays it on a bit thick.

'The Laundromat' is endlessly fascinating but also extremely exhausting.
October 9, 2019
Does it work? Enough for an evening's diversion... but not enough to get you good and mad, the way you should and the filmmakers intend.
October 9, 2019
Other filmmakers might have approached the material with more heat and passion. Soderbergh opts for an arm's-length style, using this as an opportunity to educate as much as entertain.
October 7, 2019
Streep is breathtaking, and must be seen to be believed.
October 4, 2019
A really fascinating movie that is perplexing and sometimes irritating and uneven to watch, but I really like how it came together in the end.
October 3, 2019
"The Laundromat" is the kind of movie that is entertaining because it's directed with sharp zest, but important because you learn something along the way.
