Finanzkrise

cinegeek.de - wrote on 03/07/2016

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.

'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 …
