Wonky, both in its fascination with policy, and in its eccentrically dry tone ...
It all feels more suited to the classroom than a movie theatre when Schreiber details how raising interest rates slows economic activity, or how the Fed became "banker to the world."
Money For Nothing lacks the rush of Rush, but you still might find your pulse racing and your blood boiling by the film's end.
The subtitle declares rather than alludes. It is what it is, as Bill Belichick (that gridiron Ben Bernanke) would say, bluntly informing what the movie is about.
Thumbing through this flip-book of experts - some seem better credentialed than others - can be a blur, but their cautioning about a Greek-style government debt bubble is hard to ignore.
A thoughtful, detailed chronicle of the Fed's origins, responsibilities and shifting monetary policies.
Possibly too appealing and accessible to be taken seriously enough for impact. But at least it's entertaining and informative to a degree for us layfolk.
As an introductory course in monetary policy, it works. This is an admirably wonky film, but its audience will likely be small; it's too simplistic for experts but too dry for the masses.
Money for Nothing: Inside the Federal Reserve is a well-informed, reasoned critique of the Fed, and its role as an enabler in the recent financial crises.
That Bruce could muster anything even remotely engaging about this subject is a clear testament to his filmmaking skill.
News flash: People are buying stuff they can't afford. There, now you don't have to bother.
It's immensely educational...and dry as a soda cracker.
