Topical drama about the financial crisis lacks the visceral punch to grab an audience.

A methodical, coolly absorbing boardroom thriller.

Spacey is mesmerizing as Sam, a weary, aging lion losing his appetite for antelope. And Irons plays the villain with magisterial ease.

It's a realistic take on what happens when high-flying money speculators suddenly hit ground. It's also a great calling card for J.C. Chandor, the writer/director making his feature debut.

That Chandor manages to find the blood in each character is accomplishment enough; that he manages to make his drama both relevant and timeless portends a bright future indeed.

Margin Call is the movie Oliver Stone tried to make with Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps, only a lot less flashy and melodramatic -- and sharper, smarter and with a much stronger cast.

Margin Call is one of the strongest American films of the year and easily the best Wall Street movie ever made.
