Movie Info

From the producers of ENRON: THE SMARTEST GUYS IN THE ROOM comes a Wall Street heist story about a still-unfolding financial crime so big, it has the power to affect all of our wallets. Investors on the fringes of the financial world feverishly seek new alternatives for high-return investments in the global markets, and have found a goldmine in China. But when one investor discovers a massive web of fraud, everything else is called into question. Jed Rothstein's documentary rings the alarm on the need for transparency in an increasingly deregulated financial world by following those working to uncover the biggest heist you've never heard of.

  • 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.

    Mar 29, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • A documentary may simply be the wrong delivery mechanism for a byzantine exposé that cries out for detailed news reporting.
