Product Description

Inside Job ~ Inside Job

Amazon.ca

As he did with the occupation of Iraq in No End in Sight, Charles Ferguson shines a light on the global financial crisis in Inside Job. Accompanied by narration from Matt Damon, Ferguson begins and ends in Iceland, a flourishing country that gave American-style banking a try--and paid the price. Then he looks at the spectacular rise and cataclysmic fall of deregulation in the United States. Unlike Alex Gibney's fiscal films, Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room and Casino Jack, Ferguson builds his narrative around dozens of players, interviewing authors, bank managers, government ministers, and even a psychotherapist, who speaks to a culture that encourages Gordon Gekko-like behavior, but the number of those who declined to comment, like Alan Greenspan, is even larger. Though the director isn't as combative as Michael Moore, he asks tough questions and elicits squirms from several participants, notably former Treasury secretary David McCormick and Columbia dean Glenn Hubbard, George W. Bush's economic adviser. Their reactions are understandable, since the borders between Wall Street, Washington, and the Ivy League dissolved years ago; it's hard to know who to trust when conflicts of interest run rampant. If Ferguson takes Reagan and Bush to task for tax cuts that benefit the wealthy, he criticizes Clinton for encouraging derivatives and Obama for failing to deliver on the promise of reform. And in the category of unlikely heroes: former governor Eliot Spitzer, who fought against fraud as New York's attorney general (he's the subject of Gibney's documentary Client 9). --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Format: Blu-ray
Charles Ferguson's "Inside Job" is like a documentarial "Usual Suspects". While the film by Bryan Singer highlighted the exploits of a team of professional criminals and a job gone horrifically wrong under the watchful eye of the mastermind Keyser Soze - Ferguson pulls the cover off the wrongdoings of a cabal of professional bankers and how their string pulling misdeeds and pursuit of personal riches resulted in a meltdown of the world financial system - echoes of which will be felt for years... maybe decades.

Winner of the Academy Award for best feature documentary of 2010, "Inside Job" opens with a brief expose of how Iceland was an early victim of the hype and and misunderstood potential of derivatives trading. It was a neat little teaser of a story (which has the potential of being a feature length documentary on it's own), that leads into the main target in Ferguson's scope: Wall Street bankers and their lust for profit.

Interviews with former employees of some of the institutional culprits are very enlightening. After particularly bombastic revelations in the film are made concerning some big players in the industry, a black screen with white type is displayed saying "Goldman Sachs" or "Alan Greenspan" or "The SEC" was "unavailable for comment for this film". The list of players who turned a blind eye in the interest of exorbitant personal gain is a known fact, but to hear their colleagues and the likes of George Soros interviewed giving the gritty details is a nice reinforcement.

A lot of great journalism has been produced surrounding the events addressed during the encapsulating footage of "Inside Job".

Format: DVD
The recent global financial meltdown will go down in history as one of those singularly defining events that characterizes what is wrong with society. If we always suspected that greed and corruption were at the heart of the human condition but could never prove it, 2008 changed all that. Charles Ferguson's award-winning film, "Inside Job" takes us inside the various American financial institutions where this monstrous scheme of corporate deregulation was hatched in the years leading up to the ultimate crisis. Instead of reviewing the chain of events which are already well-known, Ferguson visits a number of the big players after the fact to get their view on why global financial markets virtually seized up in September 2008. Most of the big-name operators who capitalized on derivatives, subprime mortgages, and credit swaps were from the Wall Street fraternity. Prominent investment bankers like Blankfein, Paulson, Fudal and other lesser knowns openly encouraged the multi-billion dollar sales of questionable securities which they then proceeded to go short on. In this era, government regulators from the Fed and Treasury turned a blind eye to these seriously unethical practices that threatened the very integrity of the American financial system. Not only were American banks and insurance companies in the thick of this concerted drive to unload bad debt on unsuspecting clients, European banks were caught up in it too. Icelandic banks were privatized and became involved in arranging over a hundred billion dollars in dodgy loans that eventually destroyed the country's economy when they were called in.Read more ›

Along with "Let's make money" and "Capitalism, a love story", "Inside job" offers a great inside view of today's financial system, in other words the heart of capitalism.

SnowPharaoh, you said this documentary was sensationalist? Well perhaps a little to jazz it up a bit, but not as much as Michael Moore telling Americans that Canadians don't lock their doors, based on his experience in Sarnia, Ontario. Everything about this documentary was well researched and supported, including all the warnings, articles and books about the coming global financial crisis.

Matt Damon does an excellent job. The complexity of the derivatives market, particularly the CDO's, is spelled out nicely in layman's terms for the average viewer. Although, as with any documentary, you need to pay close attention. I've watched it a few times now, I highly recommended this as one of the best documentaries I've ever seen.

If steam isn't coming out of your ears at the end of this well executed expose, then I'll cook you dinner! Real powerhouse of a documentary, and I take my hat off to this talented director. I read that his next project is a documentary on Wikileaks, so fasten your seatbelts! When you think that Madoff got nailed, these other crooks should be thrown in the slammer for nearly destroying the economy along side the former Federal Reserve Chairman for deregulation!. A must see. Outstanding work.

This documentary is well organized, instructive and entertaining. The film includes a historical background, an explanation of the financial mechanisms, a detailed examination of both the bubble and the following 2008 crisis, the impact on society, and countless interviews with some fascinating people involved in the financial world, including several internationally recognized faces. Not all of the interviews are friendly. Some are quite hostile and I'm sure there are a few who sincerely regret agreeing to be interviewed.

Many people in the upper echelon of the financial district are some of the most destructive sociopaths alive, but what is truly shocking is how government leaders, regulators and advisors were so inept. The top execs were like drug addicts that couldn't help themselves but there were others that had the power to stop this. I'll be forever annoyed by Greenspan being "ideologically" against regulation. Can you imagine city traffic without signs, signal lights, speed limits and blood alcohol restrictions? That was Wall Street (probably still is). What was Greenspan thinking?

Having a likable star like Matt Damon narrating this film is a great boost. The Blu-ray package includes full-length commentary, "The Making of Inside Job" and deleted scenes. A good companion to this film is Margin Call, a dramatization of the financial collapse from the perspective of a big firm at the peak of the crisis.
