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.
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.
The working title: The Wolves of Wall Street
*and I'm positive Ben Bernanke is Terrence Malick :)
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)…
Its logical appeals are too rapid fire for the common man who doesn't understand the financial industry to become swayed by them, so the movie instead relies on emotional appeals via editing and ad hominem attacks. Michael Moore style. You'd probably be better served by reading articles (including some cited in this very movie) on the subject at your own pace.
Of all the movies that are essentially glorified PowerPoint presentations, Inside Job is one of them.
A few missteps. Not Ferguson's best - a bit didactic and may just be too wordy (or I might be too dumb) but never bad.
Well researched and narrated. Scary stuff
when you watch this masterpiece you will be sick..... Sick that the world is so crazy and it' all about the money! i think that every person worldwide must see this picture!!!! it's a must!
You'll find this movie very complicated if you don't have any interest on Economics. DO NOT stop watching it. Watch it again and again and again, until you understand what it's saying. You'll learn what is really going on finance sector.
El retrat perfecte de què ha portat a la crisi actual i com no hem aprés de l'error
My dream will bring me to the states, it's films like these that make me hesitant.
Inside Job take a disturbing look at what caused the crash of 2008 and its absolutely disgusting what it shows us. The greed and deceit present in the financial district during the bubble was outrageous. The majority of people responsible simply walking away unharmed and still rich is absurd and a major flaw in the legal dealings with the matter.
Asking the questions that need to be asked, the documentary is able to show us these peoples nerve into covering up what it is they have done. A very informative film, Inside Job deserves to be seen by all.
Complicated but once once you get past that.....you then want to burn every bank to the ground!
