‘The Laundromat’ Review: Power, Corruption and A-List Celebrities

‘The Laundromat’ Review: Power, Corruption and A-List Celebrities
Remember when Steven Soderbergh retired from moviemaking? There was a brief moment when the 56-year-old writer-director declared he was done trying to jam his square-peg projects into a one-size-fits-all landscape. The guy who helped kickstart the Sundance Revolution, who reinvented himself via a meta-masterpiece (we’re talking about Schizopolis and yes, we’re willing to die on this hill) and reinvigorated George Clooney’s career, who’s made movies starring Julia Roberts and a KFC employee from West Virginia (respectively), and made us take Channing Tatum seriously — he was happy to go paint.

‘The Laundromat’ Film Review: Steven Soderbergh’s Panama Papers Tale Is a Messy Exposé

‘The Laundromat’ Film Review: Steven Soderbergh’s Panama Papers Tale Is a Messy Exposé
Steven Soderbergh has crafted a sharp and funny tale about rapacious greed and the exploitation of the working class — it’s called “High Flying Bird,” and you should check it out on Netflix if you haven’t already. Also coming to Netflix is Soderbergh’s second feature of 2019, “The Laundromat,” and it’s a well-intentioned hot mess.

Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns (the “Contagion” writer adapts Jake Bernstein’s non-fiction book “Secrecy World”) attempt to follow the “Big Short” playbook of taking complicated financial concepts and breaking them down for a mainstream audience, complete with actors talking to the camera. For all their good intentions, though, “The Laundromat” flails about, with an excess of bad ideas that undercut the justifiable outrage over the events depicted.

A reminder: In 2016, a whistleblower released more than 11 million documents from the law firm Mossack Fonseca, detailing the labyrinth of shell companies and holding

Movie Review – The Laundromat (2019)

The Laundromat, 2019.

Directed by Steven Soderbergh.

Starring Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Jeffrey Wright, Nonso Anozie, Matthias Schoenaerts, Melissa Rauch, Sharon Stone, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Rosalind Chao.

Synopsis:

When a woman suffers an insurance injustice, she begins to investigate the shady law firm Mossack Fonseca, who would eventually become the subject of the Panama Papers.

“We are real people, just like you,” deadpans Gary Oldman during the opening voiceover of Steven Soderbergh’s new Netflix drama The Laundromat, sporting a ludicrous accent which sounds a bit like me attempting to do Werner Herzog. He’s playing Jürgen Mossack who, along with business partner Ramón Fonseca (Antonio Banderas), founded the law firm Mossack Fonseca, which is now infamous as the entity exposed in the Panama Papers investigation of 2016. Soderbergh’s film, penned by regular collaborator Scott Z. Burns, attempts the almost impossible task of explaining that story in a way

The 14 Most Anticipated Movies at the Toronto Film Festival

  • Variety
While the beginning of fall usually means back-to-school and the end of outdoor barbecues, Hollywood has its own way of changing seasons. The Toronto International Film Festival, which starts on Sept. 5, marks the official launch of the Oscars race.

Unlike neighboring film festivals at Telluride and Venice, which both take place on the weekend before, Toronto is easier to reach and packed with far more screenings: more than 200 movies. Here are 14 that will likely be the talk of Canada.

“Hustlers”

(Stx Entertainment, Sept. 13)

Director: Lorene Scafaria

Cast: Constance Wu, Jennifer Lopez, Julia Stiles, Keke Palmer, Lili Reinhart, Cardi B, Lizzo

Ever since I saw “Hustlers” at an early screening, I can’t stop raving about it. Every Oscars season, there’s a movie that sneaks up on the pundits. And I have a feeling that this dramatic comedy written and directed by Lorene Scafaria will be a box office hit and critical darling.

‘The Laundromat’ Review: Soderbergh’s Panama Papers Satire Is Money-Laundering For Dummies

‘The Laundromat’ Review: Soderbergh’s Panama Papers Satire Is Money-Laundering For Dummies
Steven Soderbergh excels at exploring the complex systems governing modern society with a delicious ironic tone. With “The Laundromat,” that tendency reaches a grandiloquent extreme. The director’s funny, searing look at the Panama Papers scandal unleashes a cavalcade of goofy fourth-wall-breaking explanations about shell companies, corporate tax laws, and offshore accounts. It has a gun-toting Meryl Streep shooting up a fraudulent insurance company, primitive cavemen to explore the origins of supply and demand, and a cameo by Will Forte as “Doomed Gringo #1.” There’s no telling where this movie will go in its quest to shake up a dense subject.

Needless to say, “The Laundromat” stuffs a lot of information into 95 minutes. The slapdash narrative doesn’t always click, and some of the devices are so on-the-nose one can practically hear Soderbergh and screenwriter Scott Z. Burns cackling at their cleverness. At the same time, , so that even the

Venice Review: Steven Soderbergh’s ‘The Laundromat’ is a Zippy, On-Form Look at Off-Shore Accounts

Benicio Del Toro in Traffic, Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich, Michael Douglas in Behind the CandelabraSteven Soderbergh has directed a great many stars to career peaks and the statuettes that follow. While Meryl Streep is probably the last person in need of help with such things, her first collaboration with the shape-shifting pioneer of American independent cinema can’t help but stand out amongst her illustrious career. A new entry into the financial satire sub-genre of Soderbergh’s filmmaking, his new movie The Laundromat is an air-tight, tumultuous info-graph about our rotten to the core financial systems and, in particular, the 2016 Mossack and Fonseca leak, when millions of the Panamanian law firm’s files were anonymously leaked to the press.

A quick overview would be sufficient to suggest that this is Soderbergh’s answer to The Big Short. Filmmakers have recently woken up to the idea that solemnity is

Soderbergh's The Laundromat Trailer Arrives, Meryl Streep Takes on Scams with an Ensemble Cast

Netflix has revealed the first trailer for The Laundromat. This is one of the streaming service's major fall releases and they're surely hoping this might capture some Oscar attention later this year. Not only is this the latest from director Steven Soderbergh, the man behind Ocean's Eleven and Magic Mike, but it boasts a stacked cast that includes (but is certainly not limited to), Meryl Streep and Gary Oldman. Plus, it's taken on the infamous Panama Papers scandal. Needless to say, there's a lot to hook into with this one, and the trailer adds even more to the mix.

One might think a Steven Soderbergh movie about a scandal that covers tax fraud and laundering money for the world's wealthiest individuals might have a bit of an overly serious weight to it, especially with such a prestigious cast. This trailer showcases quite the opposite. We see Gary Oldman and Antonia

Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas Steal a Lot of Money and Have a Lot of Fun in ‘The Laundromat’ Trailer (Video)
Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas look like they’re having a blast in the first trailer for “The Laundromat,” living the high life while Oldman puts on a thick accent that makes him sound like Lawrence Welk.

But who said he could have this much fun? “The Laundromat” is Steven Soderbergh’s story of the Panama Papers, a massive conspiracy of the uber-wealthy that involved money laundering, bribery, extortion … you name it. But Soderbergh has taken the route of his screwball comedies like “The Informant! instead, making the Panama Papers story into a lavish farce.

“Where the f— is my money,” one woman demands to know in the trailer? “Most of the time, we don’t even know,” Oldman says with a smile.

‘Guava Island’ Explained: Understanding Donald Glover and Rihanna’s Surprise Film
Donald Glover continues to grow and impress as an artist, adding the short film “Guava Island” to his already impressive resume of Grammy-winning music as Childish Gambino and his Emmy-winning show “Atlanta.”

The 55-minute movie seemingly came out of nowhere. In early April, Spotify began running ads for “Guava Island” and created a hidden playlist inspired by the film. Amazon Prime Video released a short teaser last week showing Glover and Rihanna dancing in radiant beach outfits to drum beats. Then, Glover exclusively showed the film to Coachella-goers on Saturday as a part of his headlining set. For 18 hours, anyone could watch the movie for free on Amazon Prime Video, but now only subscribers can view it.

Somewhere between an extended TV episode and a feature-length film, “Guava Island” tackles a lot of themes in its tight runtime. With FX’s “Atlanta” on hiatus, the movie could be the key

How Donald Glover and His Team of Collaborators Wrote, Then Made, ‘Guava Island’

How Donald Glover and His Team of Collaborators Wrote, Then Made, ‘Guava Island’
The creative process that would eventually lead to the critically acclaimed Atlanta began, inadvertently, with a former child actor, porn star and viral rapper. In 2013, Abella Anderson was the center of adult entertainment, Danielle Fishel was years removed from playing Topanga on Boy Meets World, and Trinidad James was still running off “All Gold Everything” fumes. They all starred in Clapping for the Wrong Reasons, the visual prelude to Childish Gambino’s 2013 album Because The Internet.

The short film was the brainchild of a pre-Grammys, pre-Emmys, pre-Golden Globes Donald Glover

Everything We Know About Donald Glover and Rihanna's New Amazon Film, Guava Island
When Donald Glover and Rihanna posted a photo of them together months ago, the internet was instantly buzzing with rumors that they were working on a project. Turns out, the rumors were right: the duo have filmed a new movie, Guava Island, and the trailer first debuted at the Pharos Festival in New Zealand. Details about the secret movie are still scant, but here's what we know so far.

The trailer - interestingly billed as "a Childish Gambino film" - shows Glover at the center of a music-filled series of shots. He appears to play a musician who's tired of the constant pressures of the business. We know that Rihanna plays his character's girlfriend, based on the beginning of the trailer where the two flirt while he plays guitar. Other than that, most of the trailer follows Glover running through the streets of what looks like a town in some
