    An angry, compelling and must-see documentary that dissects the causes and consequences of the global economic meltdown of 2008, probing deep into the truth behind it and exposing a corrupted political system that favors the wealthy to the detriment of the poor.

    Exceptional documentary. Perhaps one of the best ever. Even those who closely followed the causes of the 2008 financial collapse will learn something new.

    Well made and in-depth...but everyone knows the ending: the banks done it.

    Sobering view of unchecked greed and irresponsibility. After watching a series of consciousless slimeballs spew stonewalling crap you'll feel the need for a shower.
