Too Big to Fail

Too Big To Fail is a solid, informational film that breaks down the financial crisis of 2008 in layman's terms for the average viewer to understand. Greed in the highest level was the start of the crisis and once every hand was in the cookie jar hoping to get a piece of the action, financial meltdown quickly became the topic of the nightly news.
The actors came through with great performances. It is difficult to take a dry topic of finance and make it a must-see movie, but Too Big to Fail provided excellent intellectual exchange. William Hurt as Henry Paulson is a strong performance, showing a man who was at the mercy at the cooperation of global banking institutions. The financial crisis is hard to relive, but I feel it must be understood if society is looking to prevent another Great Depression.
