A MASTERED MESSY STYLE
What I liked the most about this film is its style. The film shows a very messy world, like a moving box filled with numbers that go tow to tow against each other. The characters talk at the same time, the camera zooms in and out. But don't think this is merely a coincidence or that the filmmaker improvised. This was beautifully crafted and fits the theme of the movie perfectly.
The main cast is quite impressive and you'd not expect such A-class actors for a movie about finance.
I love how the producers were able to make the film fun and engaging, while talking about a subject that many would find utterly boring. Robbie Margot in a bathtub explaining what are CDO's? Hell, yeah!
I give it 8 out of 10. Superb.
Perfect film as I see. The actors are all awesome and characteristic. The rhythm is tight and deeply involving.
I really like the theme -- 2008 global economy crisis. This film explains many technical sides unfamiliar to most of us, including those deeply affected by this catastrophe. Above the technical details, the main four roles have different philosophical insights during this event:
Michael Burry -- Realistic, Objective, Knowing history
Ben Rickert & Pals -- Murphy's Law
Jared Vennett -- Distrust of the Big Corp
Mark Baum -- Belief in the justice, even in against of the money
