Critic Reviews for Hank: Five Years From the Brink
A denial of personal responsibility and inadequate regulations: Isn't that what led us to the brink in the first place?
This is not a film that will be remembered for its high drama, but it wouldn't be surprising to see it studied in future years by scholars trying to gain perspective on a calamity that almost brought the world to itsknees.
For all of Paulson's intelligent calm in front of the camera, he is telling an American horror story of massive proportions.
This highly sympathetic documentary profile of Paulson is slightly redundant, but it's also more factualized and instructive in its financial detail.
The documentary's greatest strength is its ability to humanize Paulson.
Audience Reviews for Hank: Five Years From the Brink
I really liked this Joe Berlinger doc. The economic crisis told from Hank Paulson's perspective, but Berlinger doesn't let him get away without asking some of the hard questions.
A damn fine documentary. This reminded me a lot of McNamara's "Fog of War" with how open and honest he was being about his failures. Anyone who really wants to get to the heart of the financial crisis, this is a good movie to begin with. You get to learn all the key dates and important players, straight from the horses's mouth. Good Concept, Good Execution
