Mugino's rating of the film The Informant!

I keep questioning why I disliked this film because there is every reason to like it -- great acting, direction and solid writing. However, I couldn't help but compare this biased (and mocking) take on Whitacre to Jerry Lundegaard in "Fargo". The differences highlight what doesn't work in "Informant!": the tone is monotonously parodic and doesn't fold in the essential pathos until the end (props to Bakula btw).
