Ferguson is so mad he's punching at whatever's in front of him. It's understandable, but this is more polemic than documentary.

Who whacked the economy?

As a documentary, this is a clear-eyed, steadily building prosecution against Wall Street. But, in the end, Ferguson's film is just a moot trial in which the defendants have already escaped scot-free.

This is a powerful and coherent work that will explain where the money has gone. It just can't help get restitution against those who did it.

More entertaining than Wall Street 2 while saying infinitely more about the iniquities of those that claim to work for us.

Ultimately, Inside Job will not have much to offer those who follow financial news reports.

Muchos aspectos técnicos probablemente se le escapen a quienes no tengan al menos un conocimiento básico sobre temas económicos y financieros, pero cualquiera podrá entender y compartir las conclusiones a las que llega este contundente documental.

A forceful argument about the dangers of unchecked greed and brazen lack of accountability.

Throughout, the interviewer goes beyond standard bland. From off-screen, his barbed questions are relentless in forcing heads to follow dotted lines and confront inconsistencies.

We want them to go to jail and realize the horror of what they've done? Is that too much to hope for? The answer may be too hard to face.

An insightful and very sorry tale of the worst kind of greed, this Oscar-winning documentary exposes the people behind the global financial crisis, men & woman who are still wealthy and still running the banking industry.

I've only scratched the surface of this intelligent, riveting and informative film, which I cannot commend too highly.
February 22, 2011
Ferguson is more IF Stone than Michael Moore and is genuinely interested in getting answers, keeping himself out of the frame and only allowing his voice to intrude on the talking-head interviews when blatant spin needs to be challenged.
