    The Laundromat First Reactions

    Alex Billington: The Laundromat is one of my favorite Soderbergh films in a long time. The Big Short meets Ballad of Buster Scruggs, under the direction of Soderbergh, kind of. A clever satirical parable about how greed is out of hand & obsession with money is leading to a destabilized society

    Tim Grierson: Soderbergh’s take on the Panama Papers is messy, uneven, smug. But it’s got its anger in the right place, swiftly depicting different rich people doing myriad bad things. Often, his skill comes across as glib. Here, I found the offhandedness cleansing

    Robbie Collin: Your mileage may vary depending on how much of a kick you got out of The Big Short, but I was very taken with Soderbergh’s The Laundromat

    Hannah Woodhead: I wasn’t completely sold on The Laundromat initially but I haven’t stopped thinking about it since. Extremely here for Soderbergh’s American Greed trilogy and the weird journey the film goes on

    Keith Simanton: The film manages the near-impossible task of capturing our need and love of money and the eventual corruption that brings. THE LAUNDROMAT, with a wickedly clever script by Scott Burns keeps growing and growing as its scenes replay in my head. One of the year’s best

    Xan Brooks: Steven Soderbergh’s wickedly entertaining romp loosely based on the uncovering of the Panama Papers is an effective mixed wash of truth and fiction

    Eric Kohn: A very funny, WILD TALES-inspired breakdown of the Panama Papers scandal. Hit-or-miss satire, but Meryl Streep kills it, and some of the fourth-wall-breaking stuff is really fun

    Owen Gleiberman: A fluky contradiction that works…it’s a movie you’ve got to put on your thinking cap to watch. But then, Soderbergh knows how to make using your head fun.

    Kris Tapley: THE LAUNDROMAT is a little Informant, a little Big Short, a lot of HOLY SHIT WHAT ARE WE EVEN DOING??? Meryl adds another notch — she’s so good. Read Jake Bernstein’s book if you want the full download. It’s fantastically dense.

    Very interesting. Did not expect Italian critics to be that convinced by The Joker. Expect some difference between the ratings for J’Accuse by European critics and those by Americans!

    I honestly never expected the reception for Joker to be this strong. And people on here are trying to act like as if this isn’t going to be one of the biggest hits of the year lol. Granted Polanski’s film does have a 4.5 and we all know it’s going to flop in the United States.

    “No user starts this shady” - someone culturally relevant.

    Also got banned because...reasons? So, I guess ciao.

    Marriage Story and Ema both surprisingly low compared to American critics. The reverse is true for the Polanski of course, though less surprisingly.

    I’m surprised Marriage Story’s score is so low, considering how many raves it was getting when it debuted. Maybe it’s a film that will resonate more with American audiences than Venecian ones. The reverse could be true for Joker, since mass shooting is such a hot-button topic over here (hopefully not).

    Also, I’m pretty sure J’Accuse won’t even be reviewed by most American critics, due to Polanski’s history and MeToo (I’m personally disgusted that foreign critics give him any attention).

    Academy-Award winners:

    Parasite: Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay

    Joker: Best Actor - Joaquin Phoenix

    Jojo Rabbit: Best Adapted Screenplay
