Inside Job tells the story of the financial meltdown in 2008 that cost 20 billion dollars and cost millions of people their homes.
Sound and Vision:
It’s a documentary that’s not about nature so you have an idea of what to expect. The archived footage looks bad, the interviews are decent, and the environment shots made for the movie looks stunning.
The audio is pretty similar and exactly what you would expect from a documentary.
– Audio Commentary
– Deleted Scenes
– Making Of
A somewhat interesting Making Of, some longer versions of interviews already present in the documentary, and an audio commentary by director Charles Ferguson
Inside Job has been awarded with an Oscar and not without reason. The documentary manages to show in about 100 minutes how the economic crisis of 2008 was created and how it is bound to happen again.
All parties involved get their say (if they want to, funny to see that most of those at the cause have declined to collaborate), analysts talk about how the banking system is flawed, we get to see how things all started with Ronald Reagan deregulating the banks during his term in office and how even Obama doesn’t seem all too interested in “Change” (which was actually a big part of his campaign).
Inside Job is a great documentary that accuses those in power of not doing what is right but rather do what is right for themselves and their friends at the expense of the rest of the world. And how they manage to keep doing this despite tons of people showing that this just has to happen again unless something truly changes and regulation comes back in place.
Inside Job is a must-have for everyone.
