    This is a multilayered film that not only exposes a man's contradictions - a do-gooder narcissist; a thoughtful, delusional activist - but also speaks volumes about the fringes on both sides of the political spectrum.

    The force of Darby's personality -- a rich stew of righteousness, arrogance and self-delusion -- gives the doc a psychological appeal independent of politics.

    Among other things, this powerfully confused man is a study in American extremity.

    [An] evenhanded and carefully crafted documentary.

    What makes Informant so effective is that while its focus is on Darby, the story has a larger scope.

    Informant is riveting as it slowly assembles a damning profile of its subject. It's also timely.

    It creates a useful distance between Brandon Darby and his stories that allow for us to assess them individually, reinforcing the film's suggestion that the truth is elusive.
