  • Margin Call 2011

    ★★★½ Added

    Though it doesn't mine its material for dramatic moments, this quiet film admirably tries to explain the machinations that caused the 2008 financial crisis. And while it also never reaches any profoundly meaningful conclusions of what caused the fallout, it poses an intriguing question: while we can all point out the flaws in modern capitalism which caused the financial system to collapse, when it all comes down, which side of the equation would you rather be on?

    This would make for an interesting triple feature with HBO's Too Big to Fail and Inside Job.

  • Fight for Your Life 1977

    ★★★★ Added

    Shlocky, but also thought provoking and bold where other films about race conflicts aren't (keep your eye on the kid!) - also William Sanderson!
