Essential Viewing - The Big Short review by MD

We've had "Margin Call" and "99 Homes" looking at aspects of the 2008 financial crisis, but this is the film that will bring home most forcibly exactly what happened, and why. Given that we are still labouring under the consequences of that time, and most likely heading for a repeat in the not-too-distant future, this is essential viewing. It is an intelligent film about complex issues and ideas, but it is never anything other than absorbing and entertaining.

It has a rather quirky style in parts that can be annoying, but for the most part the story tells itself, and what a story it is. An all- star cast play it very straight, and some of the lesser known players have a real impact; Steve Carrell was not an obvious choice to play the lead, but he carries the film really well, and you'll find yourself growing equally amazed, angry and peed off as he uncovers the truth.

Based on a true story, the written summary of what happened next (at the end) is almost as powerful as the film itself, and very worrying.

Banks never change, they keep making money. - The Big Short review by NC

Concentrate when watching this. Another description/explanation of the bank scandal that hit the ordinary man...........again........will not be the last of course.

Lot of names in this one. Not giving full effect as a group though. Pitt and Bale always noticeable throughout.

Margin call and 99 homes cover it well, but Inside Job is the easiest one to understand for me. Damon fronts up an almost documentary approach, with some of the people involved at the time. The criminal element is more noticeable, as opposed to the implied stupidity/negligence theory sometimes put forward in Big Short

Bored!! - The Big Short review by cJ

So memorable I can't really remember it that well. Very complicated plot, difficult to follow after a day at work.
