The Laundromat, Gaud, Greed and Good Ole American Values

Gaud, greed and good ole American monetary values, are exposed through concatenated stories of death and adulatory, illuminating the illegalities in the secretive world of wealth, in the film The Laundromat. Based upon the book, Secrecy World, by Jake BernsteinThe Laundromat, from director Steven Soderbergh, and writer, Scott Z. Burns, sheds sunshine into the opaque spaces of tax loopholes and litigation.

Insurance, accounting, and tax structure, are not topics which usually peak the interest of most folks, when movies come to mind. However, Soderbergh, probably sensing the limited attention span on such dry subjects, has wisely drawn from a respected well of talented actors. Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Jeffrey Wright, Melissa Rauch, David Schwimmer, Will Forte, Larry Wilmore, James Cromwell, and Sharon Stone, deliver connective, at times comedic, performances about serious subject matter, that’s been secret far too long. The Laundromat is available now on Netflix.
