The frank, level-headed tone of the documentary does not transform into the righteous anger that such financial corruption calls for.
In horror movies, monsters often lose their power to terrify once they come fully into the frame. But as Rothstein reveals the full shape and size of an ogre that has slipped into our financial markets, just try to calm your growing dread.
Makes a sound case for greater regulation of financial systems.
At a time when financial regulations have been gutted, stock market indexes reel, and trade wars threaten, Jed Rothstein's slick and revealing documentary "The China Hustle" should only add to the anxiety and gloom.
The story gets a little repetitive after a while, but Rothstein does an even better job of explaining investment jargon than Adam McKay did in The Big Short, and he doesn't require gimmicks like putting Margot Robbie into a bathtub to do so.
A documentary may simply be the wrong delivery mechanism for a byzantine exposé that cries out for detailed news reporting.
US investors lose billions in 21st century fraud; language.
... assembles some persuasive and detailed evidence. Unfortunately, it doesn't provide much hope for meaningful change.
The China Hustle is one of the most disingenuous, cynical, and ultimately ugly documentaries I've ever seen.
Think the trade deficit is a source of economic concern? The China Hustle makes the imminent trade war look like a fight over small change.
If all of this sounds dry on paper, it's remarkably propulsive and even entertaining on the screen.
This is one of those documentaries -- like "Abacus" and "Enron" -- that make you boiling mad at greedy bankers, ineffectual politicians and a financial system shedding regulations like the snakes that these people are shed their skin.
