237) Inside Job (2010)
From Academy Award (R) nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson, comes “Inside Job,” the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs.
8/10 – A compelling and intriguing documentary, that makes complicated financial matters understandable. It’s success is owed largely to the interviewer and director, Charles Ferguson, who launches a series of well constructed yet fiercely honest questions to individuals who believe they have done no wrong. It makes for entertaining viewing, but it is a viewing that will also infuriate and shock you. If you had been following the crisis closely, then this might not offer up anything new, but it feels fresh and insightful. Worth sticking with to the end.
