Rated PG-13 · 108 minutes · 2010

In analyzing the global economic meltdown in his new documentary, Charles Ferguson (who directed the equally impressive No End in Sight) does not come to the fight unarmed. He earned a political science doctorate from MIT, has consulted with the White House and the Department of Defense, and has served as a senior fellow at public-policy think tank the Brookings Institution. If there is another filmmaker alive more qualified to make this film, please let him or her step forward. His bona fides help explain Ferguson’s access to key players in and observers of the crisis—as well as his terse, confrontational manner while interviewing them. While it is difficult to watch this motion picture and not get inconsolably depressed, there is a catharsis when Ferguson attacks a stuffed shirt on his own battleground and wins, which he does frequently.
