    Having watched the Big Short a couple nights ago, I (subconsciously) decided tonight was the night to watch Margin Call, without realizing that it was about the 2008 financial crisis. The two films couldn't be greater contrasts. The Big Short's snappy script, flashy cutaways to celebrity explanations and comedic aspirations couldn't be further away from this quiet, methodical yet gripping depiction of one firm's response to the realization that "we're all fucked". The two films do have one thing in…

    Ein spannender Thriller der sehr detailliert Zeigt was passiert, wenn die Finanzielle Lage eines Unternehmen kurz vor einem Desaster steht. Die zahlreichen grandiosen Schauspieler machen ihre Arbeit überzeugend und Zachary Quinto überzeugt ebenfalls in seiner führenden Rolle. Es ist alles spannend inszenieret und spielt an einem Einzigen Abend, wodurch der Film auch keine großen Zeit Sprünge aufzuweisen hat. Allerdings darf man bei diesem Film auf keinen Fall müde sein, da man bei diesem Werk jede Sekunde mitdenken muss um alles genau zu verstehen.

    Mir hat der Film durch seine Intelligenz, Inszenierung und Spannung gut gefallen wodurch er von mir 7 Punkte bekommt

    Intriguing, solid movie about the collapse of the stock market and the start of the financial crisis. They give very crystallised explanations of difficult financial constructions, but with a little bit of effort from the audience the film can be understood. The acting's top-notch, the cinematography beautiful.

    ‘Margin Call’ is a very easy film to admire but a less easy film to like. In many ways it’s the film that ‘The Big Short’ wants to be, not that I particularly think ‘The Big Short’ knows what it wants to be. But it approaches the same topic in a way that is notably less infantile and more intelligent, mature and subtle, yet is also much more accessible and easier to follow. It knows what it’s doing and has…

    J.C. Chandor's Margin Call is certainly easier to understand than Adam McKay's The Big Short that made my head hurt. Both tell a very similar story, both have excellent casts that deliver top notch performances, but for me Chandor's film takes the plaudits over McKay's, just. Maybe it was Spacey's two Oscars, Irons' one, and Stanley Tucci being one of the best actors on the planet not to have a gold statuette that swung it for me, regardless, if you want two brilliant dramas that focused on what a corrupt, inconsiderate bunch of greedy cunts bankers are, then look no further.

    Kind of a poor man's The Big Short, it has an equally impressive cast but doesn't put them to nearly as effective a use.

    Margin call.

    Película que nos cuenta lo que paso hace unos años en la crisis económica y con un lenguaje bastante entendible.
    Grandes actuaciones de un gran elenco.

    La mossa consigliata è guardarsi prima The Big Short, che ti illustra le basi trattandoti come un cucciolo di carlino che ha appena battuto la testa, e poi spararsi questo che racconta la stessa identica cosa ma spiega il minimo indispensabile, tralascia gli abbellimenti acchiappa-Oscar, e ti racconta una crisi dall'interno in modo brutalmente asciutto e mozzafiato.
