This absorbing and all-too-topical thriller follows the high-powered players at an investment bank over a tense 24 hours as they grasp at desperate measures to prevent their firm from sinking on the eve of 2008’s economic crisis. The characters' decisions are not just financial but also moral, the human cost at stake all too clear from the outset as around 80 percent of the firm’s workforce are abruptly and coldly made redundant. In other hands, this could have been dry material, but shadowy, atmospheric cinematography and giddying nighttime shots of Manhattan’s skyline maintain an ominous and highly-charged mood.
This smart Oscar-nominated documentary does a fine job of explaining the origins of the credit crunch in an entertaining and jaw-dropping manner.
