The Laundromat, 2019 - ★★½

Soderbergh means well here with an educational/entertaining look at American insurance fraud that crosses the line becoming a preachy twisted mess of a film. Streep, Bandaras and Oldman are all having a blast in the lead roles but unfortunately we don't get enough of their characters. There are too many splintered off sub-plots surrounded by an explain-it-by-numbers approach ripped from The Big Short. I applaud the effort here but this film just isn't for me.
