The Big Short
When four outsiders saw what the big banks, media and government refused to, the global collapse of the economy, they had an idea: The Big Short. Their bold investment leads them into the dark underbelly of modern banking where they must question everyone and everything.
Excellent movie on the housing market crash. Its based on a true story. Even though the movie is about the financial crisis its entertaining and funny. Initially it feels odd that the movie is trying to be funny about a serious subject but it gets better. Some scenes are innovative like the scenes where some celebrity explains some difficult banking terminology for the layman or the scene where Ryan Gosling, the narrator tells that a particular scene did not actually happen that way in real life.
Christian Bale plays a very eccentric character with one glass eye. He doesn’t have as much screen time as Steve or Ryan and his performance is ok. Steve Carell is excellent as Mark Baum who has problem with everything that is wrong. Ryan Gosling is excellent as Jared Vennett and he is hilarious with his narration and in scenes where he breaks the fourth wall. Brad Pitt has less screen time but is good as the retired banker.
