The Inside Job Blu-Ray Review



Synopsis: From Academy Award®-nominated filmmaker, Charles Ferguson (NO END IN SIGHT), comes INSIDE JOB, the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial insiders, politicians and journalists, INSIDE JOB traces the rise of a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships which have corrupted politics, regulation and academia.

Review: The Inside Job is a new documentary by filmmaker Charles Ferguson, with the narration done by actor Matt Damon.  The tactic of using a known star to narrate your film is an age-old one to create familiarity and comfort in the viewer, and the use of Damon does just that.  It helps to relax you into feeling as though you're watching something worthwhile from the first moment.  And worthwhile it is indeed.

Ferguson asks the tough questions of a number of financial and cultural figures as he tries to uncover why our systems have blended with no regulation.  How the banks and wall street and our government have become to closely intertwined that they not only rely on each other, but bail each other out...and with little to no consequences.

This is a phenominal documentary.  Ferguson is a bit less harsh than Michael Moore, so he may appeal to a wider audience and you can really get past the antics and listen to the facts and make some decisions regarding the behind the scenes workings of our financial system.

The special features on this blu-ray include: Commentary with Director Charles Ferguson & Producer Audrey Marrs, The Making of Inside Job and Deleted Scenes.

Interest Range: Documentary
