The Laundromat: Movie Review


   


Smart, funny, zany and unimpactful.
The Laundromat is a fast-paced satire of the rich and the financial frauds that they willfully commit. It fits right in line with Adam McKay’s The Big Short. However, director Steven Soderbergh and writer Scott Z. Burns wanted to make it quicker and less impactful. Less impactful is definitely what it is, this is a Meryl Streep and Steven Soderbergh collaboration that is smart, funny, illuminating, debuted on Netflix and yet most people don’t seem to know it exists. 2019

Directed by: Steven Soderbergh

Screenplay by: Scott Z. Burns
Based on the book by Jake Bernstein
