This is an utterly
amazing movie about 24 hours in the life of an investment firm during
the 2008 financial crisis. Staff are being laid off left, right and
centre as times get tough and tensions rise.
A young analyst
uncovers data that basically spells the downfall of the company when it
comes to light and that is the crux of the film. This is a film that is
heavily driven by the power of a superb script and an absolutely stellar
cast. In fact this would have to be one of the best movies that I have
seen in some time that essentially takes place in a building for the
most part with only a few instances of the action taking place outside.
The movie is
beautifully filmed with dynamic shots helping drive the dialogue, and
providing a true sense of urgency as the camera follows our stars
around. There is not a single dull moment from the time the film starts
to curtains close. It's breathtaking to watch, especially when we see
the business having to face massive moral dilemmas. It truly is
something that you simply can't look away from and a must watch for fans
of gripping drama.
With regard to the
extras, there are a series of interviews that don't really give a lot to
the product as a whole and are pretty forgettable.
