But if you don'tThis is a well-organized an compelling documentary, and everyone should see it. In fact, they should teach it in schools. But if you don't know already that the financial services industry has captured the US government, then you have been asleep for ten years. I wish it were more shocking! I wish a few of those who declined to be interviewed had actually come clean and admitted they are inhuman dirtbags. Nevertheless, this one should go into the time capsule, just so our impoverished descendants (few though they will be) will know what happened to the America they will have heard about. Full Review »

    Excellent review of events leading up to and persons causing the crisis. Most important is raising the question of accountability.

    This is a very strong, well-done documentary that really has the power, emotional weight, and logic to upset people and ignite a fire withinThis is a very strong, well-done documentary that really has the power, emotional weight, and logic to upset people and ignite a fire within it's audience. The topic is one that is constantly on the tip of everyone's tongue: the financial crisis our country went/is going through. The film is powerful because i gathers high ranking officials in the political and banking industries partially responsible for the crisis, and then not letting them take the easy way out by throwing them softball questions or sugar coating issues. The director is direct, forceful, and unwavering in his quest to get answers from some of the people who did our country wrong. Sometimes the pace and immense amount of detail can be a little overwhelming, but it really just makes you sit up, pay attention more, and actually use your brain. Inside Job does what every good documentary should do: induce an emotional reaction. The reaction from this film just happens to be extreme anger. Full Review »
