Movie Info

A kind of minimalist documentary version of THE WOLF OF WALL STREET, MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE depicts the same world of limitless financial opportunity, the greed and irresponsibility that fueled it, and the world-shaking consequences that resulted, bringing ruin to both the former "masters of the universe" themselves and ordinary people across the globe. Frightening and fascinating, MASTER OF THE UNIVERSE offers a penetrating glimpse behind the curtain of high finance, revealing the psychology, the mechanics, and the sobering reality of a world that deeply affects all of us but that few of us fully understand.(c) Anthology

Critic Reviews for Master of the Universe

Former investment banker Rainer Voss gets his closeup in Marc Bauder's riveting documentary.

Top Critic

A vertiginous look inside the bubble behind the financial bubble, with no end in sight.

Jun 5, 2014 | Full Review…

Bauder's film is a diagnosis of a system that is hopelessly sick and not being treated. Bring a stress ball to squish up as you watch.

Jun 3, 2014 | Full Review…

With a few exceptions, Voss is a reliable narrator in these shark-filled waters.

Feb 16, 2018 | Full Review…

Like Ishmael, the sole survivor of the encounter with Moby Dick, the German banker who is the film's only subject tells a tale of another great disaster.

Jun 5, 2014 | Full Review…

Marc Bauder's quietly disturbing film is near-perfect.
