Critic Reviews for Floored

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

The stories of this dying breed are fascinating.

Top Critic

This relatively short doc is more than halfway over before it gets around to addressing its stated theme: how computer trading has thinned out the crowd of sharp-elbowed traders by some 90 percent since 1997.

Top Critic

The film isn't pretty -- even the talking-head footage looks a bit hurried -- but neither is the milieu or the era it documents.

Top Critic

Smith goes easy on his subjects: A perfunctory mention of the recent financial crisis leaves the commodities exchange and its practitioners untainted.

Top Critic

Not exactly stock market math for dummies, this horror doc hybrid is nevertheless candid camera capitalism in the raw, penetrating that secretive trader thug life steeped in money lust, booze, designer cigars, drugs, and high end sex on demand.
