International award winning director David Sington (director of 'In the Shadow of the Moon') tells the story of the credit bubble which caused the financial crisis, which has brought suffering to millions.

Critic Reviews for The Flaw
(The film) makes a series of points rather than an argument... Think of it as a Festivus-style airing of grievances.
Audience Reviews for The Flaw
It simply retraces the breakdown of 2008 economic collapse. I wish it had more points or had more lessons to be learned from this, but it is more of a here is what happened and why kind of documentary. The subject is pretty interesting but will leave you disappointed by the result, especially when so many people saw the problem coming and nothing was done to help the problem until it came to a head. It has a decent presentation and holds the attention but perhaps it is still too close and we have already heard the story so many time and some ways. This does not bring much new to the table or shed any new light on the subject, but it works for what it is.
