Inside Job by director Charles Ferguson clearly maps out the origins of the global economic meltdown of 2008, how it could have been prevented, how it could have been lessened. Actor Matt Damon narrates. I’ve seen several documentaries on the financial meltdown. This is by far the best. This sobering Oscar-winning documentary presents in comprehensive yet cogent detail the pervasive and deep-rooted corruption that led to the economic crisis of 2008. Through unflinching interviews with key financial insiders, politicos, journalists and academics, Ferguson paints a galling portrait of an unfettered financial system run amok — without accountability. Inside Job is a wonderfully illuminating documentary about an especially complex topic, and hopefully can arouse people into forcing legal action to be taken against those who have so clearly broken the law and swindled the taxpayers and citizens out of literally hundreds of millions of dollars. Inside Job is a relentless, accurate and highly entertaining look at the financial meltdown. Director Charles Ferguson clearly maps out the origins of the crisis, how it could have been prevented, how it could have been lessened. It’s like a Michael Moore movie without the light touch that can allow some people to dismiss the substance of what is said. No one can dismiss this film; Ferguson is too thorough, too specific. Interview after interview, he politely makes people squirm. The analysis is piercing and relentlessly thorough. It lays out the problems with the financial industry, how it affects the entire world, addresses what should be done, and the difficulty getting anything done. We need to be socially responsible for the community and the nation we live in, not just look after our own interests. Best documentary I have seen! Impeccably done! I am recommending this to everyone I know. Everyone on the planet should watch this film. Overall it’s a must see. Documentary 2010 PG-13 108 minutes.
