Documentary, special-interest genre

The film traces what happened during the financial meltdown in 2008 and reveals from and insiders perspective some of how financial industries have corrupted politics, law, and academia.

The movie is well done, and from what I can tell, well researched.

It will make you angry - which is as intended. And that's a good thing.

I am always skeptical of documentaries. They are a bit too sensational, a bit too journalistic, not scientific enough, they rarely ponder the different factors involved in a given event or phenomena appropriately and usually require the audience to be able to bring their own critical thought to the process. And often, the audience's critical thought is simply not informed enough.

This is the case with INSIDE JOB as well. It is difficult to parse out the information from the opinions of the people who made the documentary. So I am a bit irritated by this documentary.

But I must say that, if only 10% of what is reported here is accurate (and I tend to think that more than 10% is accurate) then our western economies are in incredibly dire straights and this documentary does an incredibly important service in ringing this bell. To be honest, with the little information I have on economics in the US and elsewhere, after watching this documentary, I was first angry at being taken for a ride by the insatiably greedy, but also very fearful that our economies are in their hands. There is definitely a frightening perspective in this documentary if 10% of what is said is accurate.

On the down side, we are left with a sense of powerlessness at the end. What can be done? Even Obama seems to have succumbed to the evil ones... one is left with the impression that there will be a great need to live courageously and face even greater economic setbacks and poverty... so that a few can play.
