DVD: Inside Job (12A)
Friday 10 June 2011
Seething, outraged and appalled. Those are just a few components of the emotional Molotov cocktail that Inside Job, Charles Ferguson's Oscar-winning documentary of the 2008 financial crash, evokes.
The film gives potent analysis of the worst crash since the Great Depression. An impressive multitude of economic experts give testimonies against the evils of financial deregulation and unchecked greed, while Matt Damon offers an uncomplicated narrative. Inside Job does not offer a happy ending. In fact, the ending – which reveals that most of the chief orchestrators of the crash are still in positions of supreme power – is the worst (and most compelling) part.
