How do you reduce a financial crisis that’s complex enough to topple the global economy to a two-hour movie that anyone, at any educational level, can understand?
First, you dig, dig, dig. Then:
- Do extraordinarily disciplined and evocative interviews with the key players
- Support them with taut narration and diagrams that make arcane points obvious
- Edit in a way that lets the viewer hear what’s not being said, as well as what is
It adds up to a tight, fast-paced and utterly harrowing story — the one we’re living right now.
See it if you can.
