Hollywood has turned out losers but this is definitely not one of them. Five stars for this true story about the crash of 2008 is a gross understatement. This flick should be required viewing for every journalism, ethics, economy and civics class beginning in grade school throughout grad school; five stars for this movie is an understatement.
Any media professional who views this movie and doesn’t get the message in this flick should be fired for gross incompetence; any media professional who doesn’t view this flick should be fired for insubordination; the message here demonstrating Wall Street fraud failures that grew the bubble leading to one of the biggest crashes in economic history is breathtaking. Producers here hit a home run.
Failures of checks and balances failed at all stages in Wall Streets orgy of greed; like a crack whore abandoning all measures of ethics and self restraint. Standard & Poors, Morgan Stanley, Bear Sterns and others met their day of reckoning; however, others who could have stopped this runaway train clear abandoned their post, escaping well deserved criminal charges, especially the Wall Street Journal who knew of these conspiracies fueled by the orgy of greed.
<h3>A Prophetical Call for Course Correction</h3>
This author goes so far as to name this movie as a prophetical call for this nation to wake up, return to methods of ethics at all levels in our society: economy, Wall Street, military, government constitutional due process, Bill of Rights, Right to Life and Religious freedom. The abandonment of our core values has put one foot over a precipice and the other foot on a banana peel. The 2008 crash, still fresh in our minds reminds us of lifes lesson’s regardless whether we are atheist or not, life has built in teachers – call it sowing and reaping, yin and yang, reciprocity or whatever there is a price to pay for arrogance and greed. Thanks to a few like Brad Pitt, this movie spells it out.
The Oregon Standoff, BLM & Government overreach, Benghazi, Email Scandal and U.S Funding ISIS should be red flag warning “bridge out ahead” to our so called “leaders” steering us headlong over the cliff as though they are driving while blind.
