’Laundromat’ is a comedy that shows the tragedy of money laundering

December 2020
Laundromat is a 2019 movie “based on some real shit” about money laundering. Through comedy the film shows how bankers help the super-rich and corrupt use fake companies to hide their money from tax authorities.

It’s an important as well as funny, or actually, tragic film. Money laundering has a significant impact on the lives of everyone, and specially on law-abiding tax-paying citizens.

Laundromat is based on the details of the journalist investigation known as the Panama Papers, possibly history’s biggest leak of financial secrets. The movie is even more relevant now since US congress earlier this month passed historic legislation against money laundering.
