Capitalist mathematics at its finest,
The director of this movie makes his plots too long - this is a good movie, but many sequences are simply too long - besides the fact that Demi Moore isn't in good shape!
He did also ' a most violent year' and that too was a mediocre movie - good but too long - 'All is lost' on the contrary was a very good movie , but that's also because Redford was in it.
The only reason that they all get to continue living like kings is cause we got our fingers on the scales in their favor.
I take my hand off and then the whole world gets really fuckin' fair really fuckin' quickly and nobody actually wants that. They say they do but they don't.
A film about the early stages of the economic crisis of this century. If you're interested in all that, finance talk, power plays, then this one is probably one of the closest to reality and will be enjoyable. If you have no interest in this topic at all, or Kevin Spacey and Jeremy Irons, you're not going to enjoy this one bit. Me personally, I wasn't hooked immediatly after the first act but some of the characters made it interesting…
wants to be better than it is, but still an interesting meditation on the issues surrounding what led up to the economic crisis in 2008/2009
Hate this film. waste of time
The initial exposé takes a little while, but from the moment Jeremy Irons appears on screen, the movie kicks into a higher gear. Solid performances, although it sometimes feels more like a collage of a bunch of great scenes, because of the lack of a true protagonist. Good reminder about what kind of shithole modern day banking has become.
A great cast for an average, classical drama...outstanding performances by Stanley Tucci and Jeremy Irons

Great cast, NYC filming locations (Brooklyn Heights, Manhattan Bridge, One Penn Plaza), described financial crisis so layman coukd understand, emphasis on human toll.
It might not have been the most narrative heavy movie, but amidst the movie's mathematical jargon emerges a good film about the morality of capitalism. The movie itself has an good script that mostly held my attention. The acting also is good, but the movie does not really have any stand-out moments. My biggest fault with the movie is its very jaded view. It clearly identifies what these people are doing as villainous, when the perception I got was they…
