‘Inside Job’ is the first film to provide a comprehensive analysis of the global financial crisis of 2008, which at a cost over $20 trillion, caused millions of people to lose their jobs and homes in the worst recession since the Great Depression, and nearly resulted in a global financial collapse. Through exhaustive research and extensive interviews with key financial insiders, politicians, journalists, and academics, the film traces the rise of a rogue industry which has corrupted politics, regulation, and academia. It was made on location in the United States, Iceland, England, France, Singapore, and China.
Inside Job is one of those documentaries that just make you want to slap somebody silly. This is the story of the stock market crash and how all the people, Enron and the banks, and how the people who took all the money and ran are still running the government, and it just makes you want to kill somebody. So, in terms of comfort, if you have low blood pressure and want to increase it, this is exactly the documentary you should watch. It’s very well done and it’s very upsetting, four stars.
