Margin Call Reviews

Dan Jardine
Cinemania

Margin Call is Wall Street for now. That a sexy Gordon Gekko-type villain is no longer anywhere to be found shows just how much worse things really are today.

Big Hollywood

A well-told and credible look at the economic collapse from the perspective of one company's employees.

Deadspin

Gets the little details right, the way everyone is one bad week away from being homeless, the way you can have a conversation with a colleague with the cleaning lady standing in between you and no one will ever even acknowledge that she's there.

The Patriot Ledger

A Wall Street version of 'Glengarry Glen Ross' in which the weak are whisked aside and the alpha dogs stick around long enough to fill their pockets with millions of other people's money.

We Got This Covered

In Margin Call, first time writer-director JC Chandor creates a humanizing insight into the lives of the bankers who discovered the fall of the economy.

Maybe the financial collapse went down something like this...

Flick Filosopher

Wily humor and sly observations about the lives of these high rollers are the highlights... It's when those give way to issues of morality that the film disappoints, just a little...

The Skinny

At times, the film becomes just a series of static, over-determined conversations held in lofty offices and gleaming toilets.

Margin Call can't beat the street, missing the mark in a major way given the massive expectations.

Uruguay Total

Es casi imposible identificarse con alguno de los personajes. Y el director y guionista lo sabe, por eso dota a su ópera prima de una tensión propia de un thriller, y de una mirada cínica y desencantada.

This is Chandor's triumph, and marks him out as someone to keep an eye on in the future.

2UE That Movie Show

Margin Call's a tightly scripted, intensely acted, skillfully directed, character piece that illuminates the depths of moral and ethical corruption at the epicentre of western capitalist society.

Matt's Movie Reviews

Intelligently written and brilliantly portrayed, Margin Call delves into the belly of the beast where consequence is given no conscious and the line between good vs evil is blurred amongst a sea of numbers.

ABC Radio Brisbane

With a script void of shouting matches and preachy monologues, J.C. Chandor makes the brave decision not to demonise these characters.

Quickflix

[It] gives us villains that, rather than being sympathetic, are well-argued and reasonable. It gives us heroes that, whilst idealistic, make immoral choices for their own betterment. Margin Call is complex, fury-inspiring, and thoughtful.

What makes it engaging is that the Oscar nominated screenplay explores the people who make the decisions from a moral point of view. And finds them wanting.

Urban Cinefile

It's a fascinating film that reveals much about its characters and provides food for thought for all of us who live in a capitalist society. Greed may be good for the avaricious but it's sure as hell ugly when it comes at any cost

The Sun Herald

Smart, sharp and dark, J C Chandor's ensemble drama - eliciting defined, defiant performances from an A-grade cast - summons the spirit of David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross.

Parallax View

Chandor underplays the human drama and the anonymity of the Wall Street office building so much it risks slipping into doldrums, but the stakes are too great and the actors too sharp to let that happen.
