    The Big Short


    'As soon as it begins to sense itself and become conscious of itself as a barrier to development, it seeks refuge in forms which, by restricting free competition, seem to make the rule of capital more perfect, but are at the same time the heralds of its dissolution and of the dissolution of the mode of production resting on it.' - Karl Marx, Grundrisse, p. 651.

    Crank: High Voltage


    A film that immerses you into a world of high octane, adrenaline pumping action. Whilst the filmmakers are notably aware of their own ridiculousness, and this works well at times, the film also falls down due to its poor acting and it's overt misogyny and racism, playing on poor stereotypes and falling into the trap of relying far too much upon juvenile humour and crass imagery which does nothing to aid the film. An enjoyable watch otherwise but the glaring issues are hard to overlook.
