Das ist kein Film über die Finanzkrise für unsere Eltern. Es gibt wenig Nährstoff für Wutbürger, die sich des Themas in der Tageszeitung annahmen und nun im Film Katharsis erleben wollen. Es ist die Geschichte einiger Fond-Manager und Trader, die den Kollaps kommen sahen. Adam McKays Hauptthese ist die, das der Banken-Sektor die grösste Industrie der USA darstellt. Sie verhilft den Reichen zu noch mehr Geld. Diese Industrie wird bestehen bleiben. The Big Short ist ein leiser Film, der engagiert wirkt und auch unterhält, vor allem aber demütigend ist. Im Grunde sehen wir drei Geschichten um drei Figuren: Die Hauptfigur heisst Michael Burry (Bale). Ein Neurologe mit Glasauge, Asperger Syndrom und verkrüppeltem sozialem Gewissen, der einen Hedgefond an der Westküste unterhält. Er wettet gege...

The Big Short - Movie Review

So I've finally saw The Big Short this week and I thought it was pretty average. Steve Carell, Christian Bale and Brad Pitt all gave terrific performances, and I'm so happy that "Foxcatcher" wasn't just a one off for Steve Carell. The writing was great and some of the 4th wall breaking in this movie was good, and yes the characters actually do turn to the camera and say whatever their thinking.

I'm not saying that his the worse part of the movie, but he's only there to narrate the story and explain a lot of things that happen in the film.

The Truth Will Piss You Off

'The Big Short' retells the events that led to the economic collapse of 2008, doing so in both informative and entertaining fashion thanks to great performances, smart scathing humor, and a unique storytelling format. This is a cross between a biography and a documentary, while also containing individual asides where the actors (and guest celebrities) break the fourth wall to simplify the banking terminology and to continuously remind us that what we are seeing actually happened. These moments are very beneficial. They serve to help us easily digest the facts and add harsh commentary on the overall misuse of money that caused this massive oversight. The injustices done are still treated with seriousness. I was thoroughly entertained, but I never lost sight of the terrible true facts....
