Kalpit Tandon’s review published on Letterboxd:
Collateralized Debt Obligation, Credit Default Swap, SEC, Mortgage backed security, Sub-prime mortgages, Synthesized CDO, blah and blah and yet another blah. One might wonder, with a war field laded with so many financial jargons, this might go out with a whimper. Wait for it, The Big Short is aggressive in its detailing and even when you cannot fully acknowledge the workings onscreen, you'll still get a heavy kick out of it.
Sarcastic, morally twisted and yet, a winner of all sorts due to an all star cast, The Big Short is defining in its approach to tackle a complicated subject with grace and refuses the urge to dumb down the histrionics for comfortable viewing.
An essential watch.
