Unless you're Rip Van Winkle and have been taking a nap for some time, only to awaken and exclaim - what economic crisis? - you've been made more than aware of it. Which renders this latest doc like the last horse over the finish line in Secretariat.

The endless skein of talking heads and bar graphs make no attempt to be cinematic and will have even the most excitable viewers struggling to stay alert.

Ultimately, Inside Job will not have much to offer those who follow financial news reports.

Ferguson is so mad he's punching at whatever's in front of him. It's understandable, but this is more polemic than documentary.

This eye-opening documentary is critical of both parties in its search for answers about the causes of the 2008 economic collapse.

More entertaining than Wall Street 2 while saying infinitely more about the iniquities of those that claim to work for us.

What sounds like a rather dry box office offering actually turns out to be a frightening, hilarious and ultimately rousing experience.

Charles Ferguson, whose previous film was another cogent account of US failure, is an important contemporary historian. His style may be a little flat, but the material and the arguments are indispensable.

With Sherlock Holmes-like precision, Ferguson connects the dots between plans concocted by Wall Street's Masters of the Universe, and the financial catastrophes that ensued as far away as Iceland.

An angry and opinionated documentary. But there's enough clear-eyed elucidation to balance out the spit-flecked invective - and perhaps even justify some of it.

Inside Job, which looks at the causes and consequences of the 2008 economic collapse, is truly terrifying cinema-viewing.

Inside Job offers a concise history in a documentary that speaks to everyone and knows exactly who's to blame.
