The film that cost $20,000,000,000,000 to make.
A film that exposes 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. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, Inside Job traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.
The working title: The Wolves of Wall Street
*and I'm positive Ben Bernanke is Terrence Malick :)
I don't know... I'm really not well educated or frankly very interested in economics as of yet, and I don't feel the need to be at this point in my life (political science was hard enough). But despite the fact that I understood a little more than 70% of this film, I still enjoyed it, as it has great music, engaging visuals, and an intriguing narration from Damon.
A very scathing angry-mentary, which looks glorious, has a rhythm-setting Damon narration, and makes the money men squirm.
For people familiar with everything GFC, it's a decent critique that knows its subject matter. That said, I did have problems with the presentation, as its way too focused on individuals and corporations than the psychology of the system itself, it cant help but feel a little bit propaganda-esque. The third act lost points for me, as its too focused on placing the blame, and not focused on overall issues. What it omits is as telling as what it includes.
That said, it's probably one of the most palatable presentations of the how and why of the GFC, so its a useful and scintillating work at its best.
Charles Ferguson follows his brilliant documentary No End in Sight with another essential piece of work, this time focusing on the economic crisis of 2008.
There are very few documentary filmmakers who know how to nail the perfect balance of giving high information while never boring their audience down or making them feel like they are sitting in a classroom. Ferguson is among the finest in the field. It's a tall task, making a film about the biggest American financial disaster a pleasant watch, but that's exactly what we get here. Matt Damon narrates in a smooth and pleasing manner, getting right what so many documentaries have made into a distraction working against a project.
Overall this is a must-see-twice kind of film that doesn't make accusations without displaying the evidence to back it up. Ferguson is one of the most important directors in American cinema.
I still think this is one of the most important films made in the last few years.
I also knew that it would one day serve me well to prepare for an exam!
¨The global economic crisis of 2008 cost tens of millions of people their savings, their jobs, and their homes. This is how it happened.¨
Inside Job is a very insightful documentary about the global financial crisis of 2008 that produced the worst recession since the Great Depression. Millions of people lost their jobs and savings in middle of the crisis and according to this documentary it could all have been prevented. Charles Ferguson produced, directed, and wrote this Oscar nominated documentary. It is really well developed, beautifully shot, and will surely leave your blood boiling by the end of the two hour film. Ferguson (who also directed the Oscar nominated documentary No End in Sight, about America`s involvement in Iraq)…
"É difícil, mas vale a pena lutar por algumas coisas." Frase que termina o filme. Sem mais.
Everyone should see this film and ask themselves. Is it possible to have democracy in a capitalist economic system?
Engaging, informative and well structured.
Well dang that was informative. Inside Job is about the biggest financial crisis of our lifetime. While I would like to say I knew what actually happened, this movie was a strong reminder that I did not have a firm grasp on the actual reason for the bubble pop. Inside Job is a well executed and enlightening documentary that, in four acts, remains highly entertaining despite essentially being a lecture. The movie's structure does heavily emphasis the blame game, pointing the finger strongly at several key Wall Street executives. The fourth act suffers a bit from being a bit too angry, but the three more informative, preceding acts don't faulted from their focus.
Politically, the movie does address the idea…
A very well made documentary, with a clear message and thought-provoking subject matter.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Here are some considerations about 'Inside Job':
- It was clear to me, as I suspected long before, that there is a huge promiscuity between economics and politics, in which dark interests are explored and satisfied by both parts. That explains, in part, why the official entities, such as the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, did nothing (at least in due time) to prevent the financial crisis of 2008.
- Basically, Wall Street bankers and executives were behaving like spoiled children for a long time, playing with other people's money, only to serve their own expensive whims, not caring about whoever got prejudiced (needless to say, at a large scale).
- At the end, none or a very few responsibles…
Inside Job gives insightful view of how the devils in suits rip the world's most free country without being caught or thrown behind the bars. Documentary gets into its charm and to the detailed crisis; which is of-course very enchanting to understand.
If you or someone you know lost a home in the market meltdown during 2008-2003 this is a must view.
Unlike most of the current-events documentarians working today, Charles Ferguson makes few pretenses toward making art. His two features, NO END IN SIGHT and now this, are constructed to advance their arguments as clearly as possible, with few stylistic frills to get in the way. His straight-ahead approach is most welcome in INSIDE JOB, a film whose material could have easily inspired agitprop or a simple arc of rage and catharsis. The subject is corruption in the investment banking industry, whose pervasiveness, Ferguson argues, was responsible for recent economic crises around the world. Like NO END IN SIGHT, the film presents hordes of information but does so in such a way that it never overwhelms the spectator. The film even…
