Wall Street owns Washington. You might think you know this, but "Inside Job" makes you feel the enormity of it.

You don't have to know the difference between a credit default swap and a collateralized debt obligation to feel enraged anew by Charles Ferguson's thorough dissection of the country's economic collapse of 2008.

[Ferguson] can get to a story later but provide so much more context that his film seems definitive.

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.

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.

Brilliant documentary on the financial crises, Inside Job delivers an engrossing portrait of what happened in 2008, and is a film that is narrated by Matt Damon. Brilliant in the way that it focuses on its important subject, this is a must see documentary that anyone interested in the topic should watch. Featuring key interviews, Inside Job goes in depth about the financial crises of 2008. The content will make you think and angry as well. The film doesn't shy away from anything and it's a very well crafted documentary that should be seen. The film is unique and is a great film to watch to get a better idea of how it happened. Featuring several eye opening interviews, Inside Job is an accomplished film about this controversial topic. Brilliant in the way it goes in its subject, the documentary sheds light on many issues on the crises and director Charles Fergusson gives the viewer a much insight about how the economy collapsed and it's an enraging account and makes you ask several important questions. Watching this made me realize one thing as well, the poorer get poorer and the richer get richer. I really enjoyed this documentary, and I feel it's one of the most important documentaries to come out in a long time. Damon's narration on the subject highlights everything you need to know and it keeps you hooked from the moment the film starts, right up to the end. To me, it's absolutely sickening that bankers were able to make a profit, while the economy was failing. Because of the 2008 crises, many regular people have had a hard time recovering. This is a documentary that is eye opening, infuriating and thought provoking, it's one of the finest documentaries I've seen, and it's one that shouldn't be missed.
